BIRTH TRAUMA – Unknown Causes & Misunderstood Symptoms

Giving birth – a wondrous, miraculous, painful and traumatic experience for many women.

According to birth trauma specialist, Pippa Scott, distress in birth is experienced by upwards of 80% of birthing mothers and affects not just the mother but the baby, the partner and the family unit.

In this episode, Pippa talks about the causes of birth trauma – some obvious and others less so – and ways we can endeavour to prevent it. She also talks us through the manifold ways birth trauma can express itself after the event.

Very importantly, Pippa addresses the impact of healing oneself from one’s own past distress and generational patterns, in order to create an environment where both baby and parents can thrive.
