Birth Trauma

Birth Trauma

Recent growing research has proven that significant symptoms of trauma can arise in a mom or her partner after a distressing childbirth. Traumatic experiences can often make it difficult for a parent to enjoy the first few months, or even years, of their baby's life. Treatment is often recommended to help a person overcome what has happened so they can enjoy time with their newborn, and endure the next pregnancy and birth. There are various effective options available, including therapy and medication.
