New Traumatic Birth Prevention & Resource Guide Now On Giving Birth With Confidence

Giving Birth with ConfidenceLamaze International’s blog and go-to resource for expecting and new parents has joined with a new organization, PATTCh, (Prevention and Treatment of Traumatic Childbirth) to share the new “Traumatic Birth Prevention & Resource Guide” with GBWC readers and all of us. The guide is a collection or resources and stories surrounding traumatic birth and PTSD written by PATTCh board members.

pattch-web-logoTraumatic birth and post-traumatic stress symptoms are estimated to affect almost 20% of birthing women and being able to refer birth professionals, women and their families to this resource can provide valuable information and support during this vulnerable time.

PATTCh is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of traumatic childbirth. Penny Simkin, Phyllis Klaus, and other leaders in birth and birth/postpartum counseling have joined together to help women who have experienced a traumatic birth experience or may be at risk for such an event.

Thank you to PATTCh and Giving Birth with Confidence, for recognizing the necessity of such a resource and for making it so available to all of us.  Please explore the Traumatic Birth Prevention & Resource Guide on Giving Birth with Confidence today and share with your classes, colleagues and others. To learn more about PATTCh, its mission, and members please visit the PATTCh website.

All of us working together to recognize, offer assistance and make referrals to women at risk will help improve the experience and prevent or minimize suffering during the tender childbearing year.
