Birth Trauma

Birth Trauma affects 30,000 women each year in
the UK.
When giving birth has been frightening, maybe due to unexpected or alarming events, mothers can suffer PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). 
Sometimes, but not always, triggered by reminders of the birth, they can experience flashbacks, high levels of anxiety, even panic attacks all of which can harm bonding with baby. Husbands affected by the birth can also experience PTSD.

The Birth Trauma Association provides information about symptoms, treatment and support, click here to access the information.
