As a birth or post-natal professional you’ve probably worked with countless families who have described part of their peri-natal experience as ‘traumatic’ or ‘distressing’. In fact approximately one third of women and birth partners do – shocking and worrying statistics aren’t they?

Of course in an ideal world, this statistic would be drastically lower and even a rare occurrence….

..unfortunately, It’s not.

A very small percentage of people reach all the diagnostic criteria for PTSD and receive appropriate care.

But what about those people who don’t meet all the criteria, experience debilitating symptoms daily and fall through the net? As a birth professional you know the people I mean, some of them are or have been your clients. And it’s frustrating, isn’t it, to listen to a story which your client feels they just cannot move beyond and will forever be changed and affected by.

You’ve probably already heard about the 3-Step Rewind process which many midwives, doulas, antenatal educators, breastfeeding consultants etc… are becoming skilled in. And hearing the testimonies from these professionals as they help their clients to stimulate their own healing mechanisms after a ‘traumatic’ event – it is indeed heartwarming and inspirational to hear.

I am proud to be able to share my own experience of, and train others in this very simple to learn process during the 2 day training with Birthing Awareness.


The Birthing Awareness 3 Step Rewind Method is a gentle and safe way of working with parents and other birth professionals to lift the heavy feelings and symptoms that can remain after a difficult or traumatic birth, post natal or breast feeding experience, or any other perinatal trauma.
It is easy to learn and naturally activates a person’s own ability to heal themselves.
The simple but effective steps move someone through their past traumatic experience, through to understanding it’s current impact on their day to day life, before looking ahead to a future that they desire.
The core skills covered are:
  • Rapidly building trust and rapport
  • Effective debriefing and listening skills
  • Working safely to avoid re-traumatising
  • Using solution focused questions to promote healing
  • Relaxation and guided visualisation
  • The 3 Step Rewind Process
This course includes:
A 2 day workshop that covers a thorough understanding of the causes of trauma symptoms, it’s biological set up and how symptoms can be released using the 3 Step Rewind Method
Invitation to a closed Facebook group of attendees and practitioners where ongoing peer support is provided, success stories shared and questions are answered
Listing on our practitioners page.
A Manual outlining the process, with relaxation scripts and resources for your ongoing learning.
So, if you are a birth professional who would like to be able to help women and birth partners to effectively overcome difficult feelings and responses connected with memories surrounding pregnancy, birth & postpartum, then this course is designed specifically for you.
