Birth trauma resolution has enabled me to have a positive reflection on the birth of my son. This therapy really helped me to process the birth in a safe and relaxed state so that I now feel that my memories are no longer traumatic. During the second session I felt instantly calmer, happier and my mind was clearer. I was surprised at how quickly I felt this way. After the third session I was able to distinctly remember meeting my son after waking from surgery as previously this had become a blurred memory. I now feel confident about any future births and when I think of the hospital, I no longer feel anxious or fear. It is great to be able to talk about my birth and describe it in such a positive light without becoming distressed and I can now remember his birth as an amazing and positive experience.
Following the second session of birth trauma resolution I felt that H was able to talk about the birth in a positive way for the first time. I think these sessions have been really valuable as they have enabled H to remember things more clearly, without the emotional baggage which had not only blurred the series of events, but also focused her attention on the traumatic elements of the experience.

The rewind technique has definitely helped me reduce my trauma symptoms. When I first met Belinda I couldn’t think or talk about my birth without crying and feeling like I was right back at the birth.
After three sessions I am able to talk and think about it without getting upset. I did find it difficult to work through one particular part of the birth when I thought my baby had died. However, Belinda worked on that particular part again in my 3rd session. Whilst I still feel tearful when recalling that part of the birth I don’t actually cry and I feel more in control of those feelings.
Belinda was lovely and quickly made me feel at ease. I felt she really understood birth trauma and the wide reaching impact it has on all aspects of life. With this technique being so quick and over such few sessions it is important to be able to build a rapport with someone quickly and Belinda is able to do that.
Belinda’s relaxation works well for me, her voice is very calming. She is also able to explain what is going to happen in easy to understand language.
I am due to have my second child in just under 2 weeks. I feel so much more confident about the birth now and even able to look forward to it! I also feel my relationship with my daughter has improved as my trauma is no longer in the way.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone and I really hope that it is provided by the NHS in the future.
