Birth Processing

SIGNS YOU MAY BENEFIT FROM BIRTH PROCESSING

Everyone can benefit from processing their birth experience, but it can be extremely beneficial for those experiencing any of the following:

 

  • A lack of confidence in your ability to parent or rejection of your natural instincts

  • Hypervigilance in your care of your baby

  • ​Feelings of disappointment or emptiness

  • ​Feelings of failure

  • Anger with your partner

  • ​Feeling so overwhelmed by the trauma of your birth that you are having a hard time fully expressing your love for your baby

  • Feeling disconnected and ambivalent

  • Feelings of fear or dread regarding future or subsequent pregnancy

Situations That May Contribute to Unresolved Feelings After Birth:

  • A long labor, or a very fast painful labor

  • Lack of privacy or dignity

  • Feeling unheard or coerced

  • Situation that felt physically or emotionally violating

  • Fear for baby’s or your own safety

  • NICU stay

  • Previous trauma

  • Not feeling adequately supported

  • Complications that arose during the pregnancy, labor, or postpartum period

  • Unexpected transport to the hospital with a planned homebirth
