What is birth trauma?

The birth or postnatal trauma experienced is personal, and does not require meeting any criteria except how you feel and the symptoms manifesting in your day to day life. .

The symptoms experienced by someone who has gone through a traumatic event can be distressing day to day. It can look look many things including – A constant replaying, or avoiding the memory, hyper vigilance, anxiety and anger. Such symptoms and feelings can all wear away at a person’s confidence and resilience after a while.  And it is natural to wonder when will these heavy feelings will leave?

The fight or flight response is one of our most primitive survival systems and is designed for to allow us to act in the face of life threatening danger.  The highly aroused emotions of fear and helplessness present during the trauma become inextricably, biologically linked to the memory of the event.  It is a neurobiological process and therefore no amount of willing it to go away will or thinking positive will shift it.
