Birth Trauma Resources

If you are feeling affected by your birth, please speak to your Midwife, Health Visitor or GP. There are trained specialists to help support you to heal from your birth trauma.


SANDS – a nationwide charity supporting those who experienced stillbirth and neonatal loss.
PANDAS Foundation – provides support to those experiencing pre and postnatal mental ill.
Maternal Mental Health Alliance – is a coalition of UK organisations with a vision to see all women across the UK get consistent, accessible and quality care and support for their mental health during pregnancy and in the year after giving birth.
The Birth Trauma Association – supports women (and men) who experienced a traumatic birth.


Twitter can be a good place to find online support for those experiencing birth trauma and/or birth loss. However, these are not advisory groups to help you work through your trauma, rather a place where you can share with those with similar experiences.

@pndandme runs PND hour every Wednesday at 8pm
@TheLegacyofLeo hosts baby loss hour every Tuesday at 8pm

Netmums has a forum for support on Facebook
The Birth Trauma Association has a peer support group
