Birth, Perinatal & Reproductive Trauma Support
Around one in three mums/parents describe their birth as traumatic with around 4% of parents developing PTSD in the perinatal period.
Are you experiencing:
- Heightened level of anxiety
- Not bonding with your baby
- Relationship problems with your partner/family
- Inability to cope day-to-day
- Postnatal depression/anxiety/PTSD
- Inability to sleep
- Not want to have another baby
- Don’t want to have any sexual relationship
If you’re experiencing any of these feelings, it could be that you have experienced birth or perinatal trauma.
You’ve possibly had a great birth, but could have experienced trauma around miscarriage/baby loss, IVF/Fertility journey, breastfeeding/feeding, hyperemisis (pregnancy sickness), postnatal experience, neonatal unit, colic/reflux baby and more.
I can help you with a 3 Step Traumatic Birth Recovery REWIND technique.
Most people find that within 2/3 sessions, you will go from experiencing symptoms of trauma to feeling relief, at peace and able to move on with the rest of your life.
This programme will help you feel:
- Able to talk about your experience without big emotions
- Calmer, relaxed and able to think more clearly and get on with everyday life much more easily
- Lighter and freer as all the emotions associated with the memory have been lifted
- Able to move on and plan the rest of your life from a place of rational thinking
- At peace and accepting of what’s happened is in the past
What’s the investment?
There is a set fee for this support which is £395.
VERY occasionally, additional help is required but this is rare.
All sessions are currently on zoom.
Whilst I use this support generally for perinatal and reproductive trauma, this can also be expanded into other areas. Do get in touch for more support if you’d like a gentle and effective way to move on from trauma and get your life back.
Here’s some of the feedback:
“Tricia was recommended to me by somebody who had used her services previously and I’m so grateful that I reached out and spoke to her about my birth experience. Tricia was extremely easy to speak to and to explain everything in great detail without any judgement. Having had a pretty traumatic birth and breastfeeding journey, Tricia allowed me to understand my experience further and to learn ways on how to cope with the trauma and how to move on to possibly thinking about having another baby when I was terrified to even consider this before speaking to her. The sessions were easy to organise and Tricia was flexible with my diary. I believe reaching out to Tricia was the best thing I could have done for myself and I’m more content and accepting of my experience now. Thanks so much Tricia!”
"Following the birth of my second baby I was struck with quite sudden and crippling health anxiety. It was affecting me physically and mentally and impacting on the job I was doing as a Mum and partner. Tricia was recommended to me so after following her Instagram for a while and exchanging a few messages I thought we’d be a good fit. I was a bit apprehensive about the sessions but Tricia really put me at ease. Since my sessions with Tricia I have noticed a huge difference in my mind set I used to be constantly checking myself, googling things, obsessing and phoning my GP regularly but this has almost completely stopped. I still have wobbles but before I felt like I’d lose days like this and wasn’t totally present for my family but since my first couple of sessions with Tricia I have noticed significant improvements and my partner and children are definitely benefiting from a much happier and more present me. I can’t recommend Tricia enough."
"I followed Tricia for some time on social media after a friend had recommended her to me. I listened to what she had to say and a lot resonated with me. I really struggled during the pandemic with all the pressures on me all of a sudden, husband trying to work from home, 2 children at home and having to homeschool one of my sons whilst trying to run my own business from home. I had suffered 2 really quite traumatic births with both my children but brushed it all under the carpet because I had no time to deal with my issues because my family needed me and I didnt have time to dwell on what happened then we were all of a sudden plunged into all living together 24/7 and I just was not coping to the point I felt I was going crazy so I reached out to Tricia. I have not looked back since that day I first spoke to Tricia. She has helped me unload the trauma from my births. She has given me coping strategies and helped me imagine a better, happier life with my family and it is working. I have to work at it but I am willing to make the change for me and my family because they are worth it."

"Tricia helped me understand that any emotion felt so intensely over a long period of time is also a form of trauma, and that what I was feeling was valid, and deserving of help. Working on healing my breastfeeding trauma has had an enormous impact. My husband noticed a difference almost instantly.
The most amazing outcome, which was completely unexpected, was the wave of memories that were unlocked in the weeks after we'd finished our work. Moments from the first four months of my daughter's life reappeared in my memory that I never knew I'd shut out. It was wonderful!"
"After being gifted with being a mum to a beautiful boy I’ve always wanted & an amazing pregnancy, I found myself straight after childbirth in a mental state of dark depression & anxiety & I didn’t know how to fix it, because on paper I had everything I ever wanted so why wasn’t I happy?
I am so lucky Tricia has been part of my journey, the work we have done together has truly helped me heal. I genuinely feel really happy, less anxious, more relaxed, more understanding of how to soothe my anxiety and most importantly that I have been given the tools to be able to be the mum I always wanted to be.
Tricia is the least judgemental person I have ever virtually met, she understands, she’s real, she’s a safe space & she helped me cope with this huge transition of motherhood.
Thank you for helping me feel like me again. My family and I are so grateful."
"I’d been struggling with PTSD symptoms from my daughter’s birth, which were coming to the fore during my second pregnancy.
Tricia clearly explained the process of REWIND therapy to me on our initial call and I felt at ease with her from the get-go. Being a mum and all the birth experience she has as a doula allowed me to feel listened to and it was easy for me to open up to her.
REWIND is one of the most powerful things I’ve ever gone through. I found the release hugely cathartic as it allowed me to remember the strength I had and the positives I had experienced within a really hard time.
Tricia was so careful with me and her guidance was amazing. After two sessions, I was feeling so much better. I’m so pleased to say it’s completely worked for me. It wouldn’t have happened without Tricia.”
