Responding to the impact of a difficult pregnancy or birth experience
- 17th July 2023 10:00am
Have you had a difficult pregnancy and/or birth that has been hard to recover from emotionally?
The impact of a challenging pregnancy or traumatic birth can be profound and long-lasting. Join us on 17th July at 10am, for a webinar to explore the different ways in which women and families can be affected and identify ways of responding that have the potential to help you.
Here at The Retreat Clinics, we know that the impact of a challenging pregnancy or traumatic birth can be profound and long-lasting.
Whilst the effects of such experiences are deeply personal and can vary between person to person, it is not uncommon to experience:
• Nightmares or flashbacks
• Intense feelings of guilt
• Persistent feelings of sadness, anger, or irritability
• Avoidance of reminders or discussions about the birth
• Difficulty bonding with the baby
• Feeling low, flat, unreal or detached
• Worries about future pregnancies or childbirth
• Grief and loss
If this is you or a loved one, you are warmly invited to attend our free webinar on Tuesday June 6th.
Within this session, we will explore the different ways in which women and families can be affected and identify ways of responding that have the potential to help you.
Please note, that there will be no expectations to share your personal experiences within the webinar. We aim to create a safe and supportive space where you can gain insights and find ways to navigate challenges you may be facing.
