Birth Trauma

Resilient Emotions with Tara provides professional birth trauma support services  suitable for women who have experienced trauma during pregnancy, childbirth, and the post-partum period

Birth Trauma

Birth Trauma is distress experienced by a woman either during or after childbirth.

This form of trauma can be physical, emotional or psychological and  can lead to perinatal anxiety, postpartum PTSD, depression, lack of bonding with baby, and can impact the family dynamics as a whole . 

Birth trauma is not just about what happened during the birth, but it is also about how you felt or your partner felt during that experience.


At the time of birth did you or your partner feel fear, helpless or unheard?

Maybe you feared for your life or your babies life?

After such an experience it is possible to feel shocked, guilty, numb, angry or anxious.


COMMON SYMPTOMS OF BIRTH TRAUMa

  • Do you feel anxious or panicky when thinking about your baby’s birth?

  • Are you having flashbacks intrusive or reoccurring thoughts of the birth?

  • Have some memory loss regarding pasts of the birth because it is too distressing?

  • Are you feeling sadness or numbness? Unable to bond with your baby?

  • Having difficulty sleeping or nightmares?

  • Feeling irritable disconnected and have angry outbursts with loved ones?

  • Feeling hyper vigilant on edge or jumpy?

  • Avoiding activities, friends or places that remind you of the birth?

Perinatal Trauma can occur at any time during the perinatal journey.
Traumatic challenges such as, a difficult or lengthy fertility journey, miscarriage, loss of a baby, undiagnosed illness of the baby, a sick baby baby or mother, struggling physically post childbirth, a difficult breast feeding experience or other distressing events at this time.
When left untreated, trauma can manifest itself and can leave the sufferer intensely afraid of pregnancy, sex, childbirth, breastfeeding, often suffering from flashbacks, nightmares or anxious when confronted with triggers.
