Hey Gorgeous Soul,
It’s just been Birth Trauma awareness week (18-23rd July 22).
Birth trauma affects both men & women. A birth partner can also suffer vicarious trauma or ptsd!
Something we all need more awareness of as many suffer in silence around us.
Birth is a BIG topic & something that needs to be looked at more widely.
In 2018 I trained as a Doula. COVID has dramatically altered the whole system in the past 3 years. Meaning the level of care, information, insufficient staffing (inc midwives) has meant there are a new set of needs for parents to contend with.
So it’s great timing to have Emma Ashworth, Birth Activist & Author on the podcast this week!
