Birth debriefing sessions are a safe space for you to explore, reflect and process your birth experience. Birth debriefing may be a one off session, or several sessions, depending on your needs.

This is a unique decision depending on the individual. There is no right or wrong time to get support. For some, they may access birth debriefing soon after birth and for others it may be years.

What to expect?
During the session I will work with you to tell your story while gently exploring the meaning your birth experience holds for you. We will work through the emotions and thoughts you have surrounding each part of your story, any questions you have or need answers to, and explore ways you may begin to heal moving forward.
Sessions are done individually as each person's experience is unique. Your partner is welcome to attend your session as a support however, if they are having their own challenges in processing the birth, it may be beneficial for them to book their own session with me.
Each session is 2hrs with the option of engaging in ongoing counselling if needed.
Additional travel fee may apply for in home sessions. Please inquire when booking.
