Past Birth Review
This is a little niche service intended to address a need I perceived in the community regarding birth trauma. We probably all know someone –– perhaps we are that someone –– who has birth-related emotional or psychological trauma. It's all too common.
For those of you who feel you have some clinically-related processing to do, whether two weeks or two decades postpartum, I will review your records (if available), and then spend one to two one-hour sessions going through them with you. The purpose is not a legal one. Rather, it is to address birth related trauma from an objective, clinical perspective with a midwife who ‘gets it’ from all perspectives, from that of the mother and family, and from that of the clinical staff. It may help facilitate clarity, healing and closure.
Please note, I am not a licensed therapist, and this service is not intended as 'therapy.' As such, it is best utilized as an adjunct to birth processing work with an educated, trained, and sensitive counselor or therapist, such as a Birthing From Within Birth Story Medicine mentor.
I can refer you to such professionals if desired.
