If you are struggling following a birth we should be able to help.

We have specialist counsellors/psychotherapists and Doulas (some are both) to help with Birth trauma through our packages of support.

Through over 15 years of supporting families we have developed packages of support and therapy to help you. Whether you are planning a next birth or you have more recently experienced trauma we have tailored packages of support and therapy. In these years we have seen numerous women and families come to us who have gone to others who say they are able to offer “birth trauma treatment” to find the person really was not suitable to help them. We have written a blog post on this here. Our staff are all well trained and experienced in this area with regular supervision and updated training.

As always, we are able to offer our support packages on a sliding scale of cost depending on circumstances. There may even be some fully funding spots. We also offer hourly rates of counselling.
