I could not recommend Birth Trauma Resolution Therapy enough. This service should be in every hospital

“My children were born 14 and 11 years ago respectively. Both boys were in a hurry to arrive into our world and were traumatic. I never had the time to dwell on what happened, life just carried on. It wasn’t until I saw a post on my friends Facebook page. A quick survey “can you answer yes to any of the questions above?” about birth trauma. I answered yes to all and that’s when I realised that I still had a lot of symptoms of birth trauma and I never had full closure. So without a second thought I emailed Kirsteen. Where has she been all these years? Yes I did do ‘birth after thoughts’ but this was something different. I made a point of telling Kirsteen how old my eldest is purely because I was expecting to be rejected just by the amount of years that have passed

Thankfully Kirsteen accepted me. I could not recommend Birth Trauma Resolution Therapy enough. This service should be in every hospital. It wasn’t until Kirsteen started to delve deeper that I realised I had put ‘coping’ mechanisms in place to protect me from having to talk about my births, the main one being avoiding pregnant friends and baby showers and just making an excuse. Well after my therapy process with Kirsteen I have been to a baby shower and I am finally in a place where I am comfortable attending such lovely events and feel like I have finally put the trauma behind me
