Birth Trauma: A Somatic Approach to Prevention
Birth trauma is a preventable complication of pregnancy and providers play a critical role in this prevention. Preventing birth trauma not only supports a positive birth experience for the birthing person, but sets the foundation for optimal post-pregnancy health. This is because birth trauma is a catalyst for various long-term health issues for the birthing person including attachment difficulties, chronic pain, chronic illness, autoimmune diseases, postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, as well as an increased risk of pregnancy complications in future pregnancies. Through the study of somatic and somatosensory modalities, as well as years of client work in the high-risk pregnancy population, I have seen clients at risk for pregnancy complications and preterm birth defy medical odds and protect themselves from a traumatic birth in their pregnancies after loss or preterm birth. This presentation will cover the three most important roles of a provider in the facilitation of birth trauma prevention.
