“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly”

Birth trauma, post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and the emotional impact of having a baby born early and/or needing care in a Neonatal unit or losing a baby whatever the gestation are still little understood or talked about. Often families affected struggle to find and access support, and the impact can be devastating and life-changing.

Unfold Your Wings was founded on my own experience of birth trauma and finding that support was hard to find. It is a place of information and support for families and healthcare professionals. The aim is to raise awareness of Birth Trauma and Perinatal PTSD, help and support others by sharing the stories of those affected and most of all give hope for recovery.

Perinatal PTSD or suffering after birth trauma can leave you feeling lonely and isolated. It can be a dark place, filled with despair and anxiety. Sometimes it may feel like your world is ending and that you are no longer the person you used to be.

But healing from Birth Trauma is possible.

With help and support you can break free from the dark cocoon of Birth Trauma and Perinatal PTSD, you can unfold your wings and become like a beautiful butterfly finding freedom from the pain that has held you for so long and once again finding light and peace. How do I know? Because I have travelled my own road to healing and believe it is possible for you too.

You can read more about this in my book Beyond Birth Trauma.
