Healing from Birth Trauma
As a clinical psychologist, I am also here to help Mums and their partners with perinatal, postnatal and birth related mental health issues in Hobart and all over Australia (thanks to online services like Zoom now!).
When your baby is born, it can talk through or process your birth. When it doesn't make sense why you feel the way you do or if it didn't go to plan (it often doesn't and we all navigate those feelings differently) or if you are really struggling in moving forward from a traumatic birth. I am fond of an approach called Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) at my psychology clinic in Hobart.
Or sometimes, even when you're travelling completely fine, it can still be good to talk about it, as not everyone will be as keen as me to talk about birth with you! You can tell me whatever comes to mind, without fear of judgment or disrespect.
Private health rebates or mental care plans can be obtained. Check here to book at my Clinical Psychology Practice Page
