We would like to tell you about our service. Who it is for. What to expect from us.
When planning for pregnancy and birth, women and their partners do not normally expect to be affected by long term negative emotional responses. If this does occur, it can be difficult to differentiate between what is a normal level of anxiety or depression, and what is not. Much depends on a person’s individual situation and experiences.
Problems that counselling can help with may include:
Planning for pregnancy and birth
Depression or high levels of anxiety during your pregnancy
Fear (terror) of child birth itself
Understanding your birth story
Birth trauma: a (fight/flight/freeze) response to your birth experience
Grief in relation to loss
Trauma response as the birth partner
Relationship difficulties following birth
Afterthoughts counselling service aims to:
At Afterthoughts NI we have a small and growing team of counsellors who have been trained to work with birth trauma in this way. (90% of women report relief to symptoms using this particular model of care)
