Positive Birthing and Beyond
Our latest project was looking at trends that are impacting on pregnant women and this has been trauma through birth. Due to the pandemic with women birthing alone we seen that 30% of women label the birth traumatic. We have also seen an increase in men also and so we are supporting them.
Our charity is aiming to support informed choice and proper consent for people that are accessing the maternity care system. We are giving people space to talk through their anxieties, fears and giving them space to talk about preparing for the birth of their baby – this impacts on the experience they are preparing for, we believe that birth should be a positive experience no matter if someone has a c-section, or vaginal birth. Women & birthing people and their families should be listened too. Holistic care in maternity is just as needed as much as the medical model of care.
