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
The Birth Trauma Association has a peer support group

If it wasn’t for legal aid, then my case #Montgomery v Lanarkshire HB could never have started and Sam would not have had access to justice resulting in no fundamental changes to the law of consent. https://t.co/elVngCpBSg

Delighted that my book ‘Why Birth Trauma Matters’ was published this week by @pinterandmartin. Look forward to hearing what you all think of it!
