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.

Online

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

For the rest of BHM, we will be celebrating some phenomenal women that have been pivotal to this movement so far. They have all contributed massively to where we are today and we would like to honour them for the work they have done.

Today we celebrate Dr Ria Clarke.
