Birth Debrief: an informal session to talk through and make sense of the birth of your baby
If you have questions or you feel upset after the birth of your baby, it can be helpful to talk it through. Parents book sessions for different reasons – it might be that your birth didn’t go to plan, medical interventions may have left you feeling shocked or the intensity of it may have been overwhelming.
There is no set time to have a birth debrief, I see parents at different times…
- during the first weeks or months when it is fresh in your mind
- if you are thinking about having another baby but the birth is still weighing on your mind
- if you are pregnant again and in need of a birth debrief before you can prepare for birth again.
You will benefit from calm, knowledgeable support and reassurance.
These are confidential sessions to talk about the birth of your baby, to ask questions and to be listened to.
You can attend a birth debrief on your own or with your partner.
“It really helped to go through everything, to make some sense of it and to be honest about how I am feeling.”
“I really needed the time to focus on the birth of my first baby to help me get my head ready for the birth of my second baby. I felt less anxious after our session and I was able to put everything into perspective.”
Birth debrief sessions can be in-person if you live on Tyneside or by video/phone call. Appointments can be made at a time to best suit you
£50 for a 2-hour session, so you can take your time
You can also arrange to pay in instalments
