Why Birth Trauma Matters, Paperback / softback Book

Why Birth Trauma Matters Paperback / softback

Part of the Pinter & Martin Why it Matters series


When we think about trauma and PTSD we tend to think about war and conflict.

But around a third of women feel some part of their birth was traumatic.

This experience can impact on their mental and physical health, their relationships and future plans. In Why Birth Trauma Matters, Dr Emma Svanberg, clinical psychologist and co-founder of Make Birth Better, explores what happens to those who go through a bad birth.

She explains in detail how birth trauma occurs, examines the wide-ranging impact on all of those involved in birth, and looks at treatments and techniques to aid recovery.

By drawing on her own research and the work of experts in the field, and sharing the first-hand experiences of women, she shows how it is possible to begin to move on.
