Episode 11 is with Dr Rebecca Moore, who is a consultant perinatal psychiatrist with over 20 years experience in treating the psychological aspects of pregnancy, birth and early motherhood. Her clinical expertise covers PTSD, birth trauma, anxiety, depression, and the mum-baby bond. She is also training to be an Integrative Practioner - which is a healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle.
I was so excited to chat with Becca and learn more about this vitally important area and the work she does.
What we cover in this episode:
- What birth trauma is and how we know if we need help
- What we can do to prepare for birth
- The importance of normalising psychologically challenging births
- The power of journaling and other ways we can start to process our birth experiences
