3 Step Rewind for Birth Trauma Recovery

Course description

This is a very practical course that aims to teach a very simple but effective process that can help mums (and doulas, antenatal teachers, breastfeeding counsellors, sleep consultants, birth workers and HB teachers, counsellors, midwives and anyone else exposed to traumatic events) move past a traumatic birth or perinatal experience. It is a very effective process that allows mums and dads to recover and move forward with their lives free of symptoms.

After completing this course students will have a clear understanding of birth trauma, PTSD, it's symptoms, how it is caused and how to neutralise the toxic emotions linked to traumatic events. The course will also cover the importance of rapport, solution focused questions, relaxation and guided visualisation in activating a person's natural resource to heal. These skills can be used in many other practical, helping situations.

Everyone who completes the course is invited to a closed Facebook community where support is given, inspiration can be found and success shared.

On finishing the course students are invited to complete a successful case study and be listed on the Practitioners page of the website www.traumaticbirthrecovery.com

Informative, Comprehensive, Great mix of theory & practice options.

This is a fabulous course; I thoroughly enjoyed the videos and coursework. I felt so confident after completing the course and Alex really helped guide me through the process. The best thing about taking the course is the difference I have managed to make in the lives of people suffering from birth trauma. It has been incredible to hear back from mums and appreciate the value of the Rewind technique.

I am a Former Midwife and have had my own Birth Biz for 6 years, teaching Hypnobirthing and working as a Doula. In all of these roles I have more times than I care to remember looked after/taught women and their partners who have have experienced trauma in birth. Birth trauma sadly is something that historically is often underplayed, ignored, glossed over. The attitude 'Just be thankful that your baby is alive'! Whilst of course any parents would be beyond grateful for a well baby we must stop implying that women and their birth partners don't matter. A healthy baby + an emotionally traumatised mama is not what we should be accepting. Working on reducing the likelihood of birth trauma is something that I very much do in my Hypnobirthing & Doula roles but I needed something else, a technique, skill that could help me to assist those who sadly have already experienced trauma and are living with the effects every day! That is where I began to follow the very awesome Alex Heath and the inspiring work she is doing to support women and couples who have experienced birth trauma. Ideally I was hoping to do the face to face course but time and circumstances wouldn't allow, so I chose to do the online course, I have to admit I was a bit concerned that I would 'miss out' a bit or not feel as connected to the support available. I was wrong! The online course was fantastic, the video's Alex included and the written material were wonderful and kept me engaged, I literally couldn't put it down! So this is now another element to my Birth work, offering the amazing 3 Step Rewind Technique. I had may first client earlier this month, I have to admit I felt pressured, this lovely lady was extremely traumatised, I couldn't get my head around how such a simple to do technique delivered in just two sessions could make such a huge difference. It literally was like waving a magic wand, the change in the lady was tangible! Something lifted and released and it was beyond wonderful to be a part of. I have already received so much interest in the sessions and feel privileged to be able to offer this amazing technique x The support I have received from Alex herself and the online community has been wonderful, you feel very supported. I really can't thanks Alex enough, this course and technique are game changers for me, women, partners, babies and I am so pleased to be a part of it x

I love this, as a midwife and hypnobirthing teacher you have enabled me to really help women who have experienced a difficult birth. I also found the relaxing script excellent and when using on myself I was so wonderfully relaxed and really helped me cope with the blame I put on myself for my mother death many years ago. I know deep down that I couldn't have changed the outcome but have know accepted it and feel wonderful, I'm so grateful it was worth the £170 just for that! I will do a case study and have someone in mind. Thanks Wendy

I'm so glad I was recommended this course as I felt there was a real need to go deeper into this side of my work as a doula. I feel so much better equipped to help women through this very delicate subject and will use this technique with confidence now. The content of the course is thorough and complete, giving you all the resources and support you need. Many thanks from all the future Mamas that will benefit from this work! Empowering indeed! Cyd
