BIRTH TRAUMA REWIND

Birth trauma is a big deal. Whilst only 2 to 5% of people meet the criteria for full blown Post Traumatic Stress Disorder following birth, up to 50% of women describe their birth as being “traumatic”, and men are also beginning to report alarming rates of distress following birth experiences.  This course teaches you how to do an effective intervention to release traumatic feelings. 

 

The Rewind consist of 3 step process that releases the negative feelings associated with the birth so that it is possible to look back and remember the birth with neutral feelings about it. The birth can still be remembered but it no longer provokes any anxiety.

 

Is usually delivered over two sessions, each lasting approximately 50-60 minutes. This process activates a persons own natural ability to heal by using deep relaxation, guided use of their memory and of their imagination.

 

The 3 steps I mentioned above include:

  • Hearing your story (should you want to tell it) and understanding the changes you would like to experience with the symptoms lifted

  • Deep relaxation, remembering the event in a specific way whilst feeling safe and secure

  • Imagining coping in the future and responding differently
