BTR therapy is specially designed to offer quick and effective relief from the hugely debilitating symptoms of fear of childbirth, birth trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) relating to childbirth. It is available to women, birth partners and health professionals who have experienced or witnessed a difficult birth or birth related trauma, such as miscarriage, termination of pregnancy or stillbirth.
My experience as a Health Visitor has led me to recognise that unfortunately women and their partners don’t always get the experience they want or expect during labour. Sometimes this is ok and other times it can have a hugely negative impact on different aspects of life. The experience may lead to issues such as postnatal depression, anxiety, difficulties in bonding with their new baby, problems in a couple’s relationship and withdrawal from family and friends causing isolation.
