Event description
The Healing Birth Trauma Workshop is a must-attend event for all midwives.

About this event

The unpredictable nature of birth can be viewed as a challenge or an adventure. Most women will fantasise or imagine how they would like this defining experience to unfold, and hope for a positive, fulfilling outcome. Sadly, circumstances rarely match these expectations. Many women (and their partners) can be left very bruised, both physically and mentally, with post-traumatic stress a common outcome.

Many events in a woman’s life can sow seeds for this. Understanding how a woman defines trauma and a traumatic birth is essential for midwives to develop strategies and skills when supporting women who have been traumatized by birth or by trauma that affects birth. Additionally, supporting women through subsequent births that enables healing and resolution of past traumas is not only vitally important for mothers and their families health, but it can also be incredibly satisfying for midwives.

This workshop will explore these crucial issues and develop practical tools to help women give birth in all settings.

Healing Birth Trauma Aims:

  • Identify the scope of birth traumas that women may experience.
  • Explore factors that might contribute to the development of women’s traumatic birth experiences.
  • Examine the consequences of poor birth outcomes on women, their partners and their families.
  • Develop strategies for supporting women with existing trauma that may minimise or resolve trauma in future.
  • Explore the impact of working with traumatised women on midwives and their approach to care.

Learner outcomes:

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the forms that birth trauma may take
  • Identify the factors that may lead to a traumatic birth outcome for women and their partners
  • Describe the consequences of poor birth outcomes on women and their future functioning
  • Identify behavioural and verbal cues that may indicate previously undisclosed trauma
  • Demonstrate specific strategies for providing appropriate physical and emotional support for traumatised women during pregnancy, labour, birth and the postpartum period.
  • Identify personal reactions and responses that you may experience from working with traumatised women through the childbearing year.
  • List support services that are available to women and themselves as midwives.
