Postnatal/Prenatal Birth Debrief
This debrief can also serve as an opportunity to discuss your birth experience if you have suffered birth trauma, this can be done after the birth or before the subsequent birth if you feel it is necessary.
Following childbirth some people may feel that they have been left with many unanswered questions, which have left them feeling like they may need to speak to someone. For many, there is a need to have their feelings validated and understood.
During this session, i encourage women to discuss what happened during their pregnancy, birth and postpartum periods and explain clinical events and discuss what that person has deemed traumatic in detail. This debrief session can last between 1-2 hours and is a great opportunity to gain clarity and closure.
This debrief can also serve as an opportunity to discuss birth preferences for a subsequent birth following previous birth trauma. There is no need for you to have your notes, however, if you do have them and would like for us to go through them then that is more than welcome. The debrief serves as opportunity to be heard and for your questions to be answered impartially. Your partner or the person who was with during the birth is more than welcome to also attend as they may have also been affected by the traumatic experience. Should you have any further questions please do email me.
