Prevention and Treatment of Birth Trauma That Includes The Baby

With Kate White

I have developed a model for treating birth trauma in families based on trauma-informed approaches and autonomic nervous system skills.

This three-part series will present information about birth trauma for birthing parents, babies and staff, skills to prevent and heal that include neuroscience, prenatal and perinatal somatics, and trauma healing, and specific tools for practitioners to support optimal health in the earliest layers of our experience.

Class Three

A Taste of Prenatal and Perinatal Somatic Tools to Prevent and Heal Birth Trauma
It’s A Seek and Restore Mission

  • We have discovered that birthing parents get better almost immediately with the tools that we use when addressing birth trauma. Many women are confused and blame themselves for what happened at their difficult births. No one is there naming what is happening for them and the baby, and most likely birth practitioners will not make repair because the liability is too high.
  • The practitioner’s job is to restore the health to the system by helping traumatic experiences integrate. You help families and staff make sense of what happened while not retraumatizing.
  • A list of tools will be named, experiences and case examples will be provided as time allows.
