Birth Debrief & Birth Trauma Recovery

I have seen a real increase in the number of women suffering trauma post birth in the past two years due to covid and the restrictions that came with that. Many women gave birth without the support of their partner and once home they were unable to have the support of family and friends. For this reason, I completed my training in Birth Trauma Recovery (TBR) using the 3 Step Rewind approach to add to my offering of Birth Debriefs.

I bring to these sessions my 25 years’ experience of supporting women during pregnancy and new motherhood. I often incorporate body and breath awareness work into my sessions.

It is common to feel highly emotional in the days and weeks that follow birth but when these emotions continue to replay and possibly resurface as flashbacks leaving you feeling anxious or hyper vigilant this isn’t normal. Until these traumatic events are fully acknowledged the memories can linger and cause a real sense of distress and overwhelm in your day -to-day life.

If you have experienced trauma within the perinatal period or have unresolved emotions linked to your fertility journey TBR 3 Step Rewind could help you.

What is Birth Trauma Recovery (TBR) 3 Step Rewind?

Devised by Alexandra Heath Traumatic Birth Recovery 3 Step Rewind is a gentle, safe, and effective treatment. It incorporates Rewind, a simple Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) technique. Working together over 3 sessions, this process activates your own natural ability to heal by using deep relaxation, guided use of your memory and the imagination.

By becoming free of the Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, it is possible to feel more positive about your situation and to begin enjoying parenthood. This technique releases the feelings associated with the birth so that it is possible to look back and remember the birth with neutral feelings, the birth can still be remembered but it no longer provokes anxiety.

Parenthood can still be challenging, and sometimes those challenges may be the result of the birth itself, but everything is much easier to deal with when there is a sense of peace and calm where there was once turmoil. This can be a truly transformational process as Rewind will lift the feelings about your birth and give you an opportunity to think differently about your future. You will realise you can choose different ways to respond to situations and you will release limiting beliefs. You will create a picture of how you would like to feel, what you will be doing, how you will be responding, what will have changed, and how your relationships would be different if they no longer had the feelings associated with any trauma you may have experienced in your baby’s birth, or during a perinatal experience.

**Please note, the 3 Step Rewind is not suitable for if you have been diagnosed with a mental health condition and you are receiving treatment for it, or if you are seeking a diagnosis. I am not able to provide medical help; I am not a clinician.

Today is [Mother] Earth Day - thinking about the entire Earth and what we can do to ensure survival on this planet can feel daunting - but here are some local initiatives that can support you to support the Earth.

🌍 @growing_green_london - set up by local Mamas - amongst other things their focus is rewilding our local schools, you can support them by donating or volunteering - they have a second-hand clothes sale fundraiser this Sunday and an Open Garden event on 9th June - join them.

🌍 @heath_hands - supporting our beautiful Hampstead Heath, sustaining its biodiversity and protecting it for wildlife and humans to enjoy.

🌍 @nadiaswastechallenge - a local Mama who gives us her own experiences of modifying domestic habits to help support the Earth - giving realistic tips - follow her page.

🌍 @fair_well_london - tackle the plastic pollution crisis by removing plastic packaging from the final stage of the food distribution chain and solving the main problem with plastic-free shopping: inconvenience. They come to you, you just need to book and buy.

🌍 @kentishtownlibraryofthings - borrow items, such as drills, carpet cleaners, projectors - you don't have to buy them - sharing the things you won't use often is a simple action all of us can take to live more sustainably - they're based at Kentish Town Library.

🌍 @kentishtownvegbox - all their produce is organic or naturally grown and sourced from small-scale farms as close to London as possible.

These are just a few of the local initiatives supporting our environment, support them and use them - helping the Earth starts at home.

[This post is a re-working of our 2023 Earth Day post, but it's all just as relevant]

A warm re-introduction to Jasmin (Jazz) McGonigle @camdenbabywearing who's recently set up the wonderful resource of a sling and baby carrier library in our corner of London. 

Jazz is a mother to two beautiful girls, with one more on the way. Motherhood changed everything for her, as it does for many new mothers. Realising she couldn't return to her job, she found purpose in supporting other new parents on their journey. Discovering Baby-wearing was transformative, giving her the confidence to venture out with a less fussy baby. She knew she had found her calling. 

Seeing children being worn brings her immense joy. Jazz personally favours woven wraps and has delved into the world of different fabrics and tying techniques.

Now a qualified baby-wearing consultant, Jazz runs her own Sling Library, empowering others to experience the benefits of baby-wearing from pregnancy to toddlerhood. 

Volunteering with @wrapahug_sling_library in East London and attending their monthly Family meet-ups in Tower Hamlets brings her great fulfillment. However, as a local parent in North London, Jazz felt compelled to start something closer to home, leading to the creation of the Sling Library at Moon. 

She now offers monthly sling library sessions and home visits to support parents during the postpartum period. 

Jazz also participates in Moon's monthly 'New Parent Drop-in,' cherishing the supportive community it provides.

You can find out more about Jazz and the sling library via the link in our bio.

🌸Spring Theme🌸

Join @marysheppardyoga for Spring themed family yoga tomorrow at Moon.

We'll explore the change in season to Spring with animal and nature poses. When Spring is finally here, all we want to do is step outside and breathe in the fresh air of flowers blooming and fresh grass. We will practice mindfulness and yoga with Spring baby animals, Spring bugs, and weather changes. 

Rainbow Kids & Family yoga classes are interactive, social, and all about connection. We will co-create the class together in a magical and playful way using lots of creativity sprinkled throughout the class.

We use games, partner and Acro yoga, stories, music, dancing, art, mindfulness and relaxation to bring yoga alive for children.

Find link to book in bio.
