Birth processing

A difficult birth can lead to the mother and child becoming traumatized. Intense stress during birth, severe pain, interventions, violence, undignified treatment of the woman giving birth - there are many different reasons why birth can be traumatizing.

  • Kristeller handle
  • Perineum cut

  • Suction bells birth

  • Forceps birth

  • Emergency cesarean section

  • Premature birth

  • Stillbirth

    Maybe you feel a lack of energy and drive. Maybe you are overwhelmed by everyday life. Self-reproaches plague you. And you find it increasingly difficult to talk to someone about it. Perhaps you notice that you no longer feel like having sex. You may notice a progressive isolation. You feel no love, no happiness in being a mother.

    At the latest now you have to act - look for help and take care of it!

    Even if you gave birth to your baby naturally, it may have been traumatic for you and possibly for your baby. Maybe your birth was "normal" or "not so bad" for outsiders. You may also have heard more than once that you should "take it easy." Mostly the reasoning here is that being a mother in itself must now fill you up and be enough. Enough to forget all the pain, all the injustice and to be happy. However, a person cannot "just be happy" after such experiences. For this it needs professional support.

    The consequences of traumatization are far-reaching:

    • Postpartum depression / depression

    • Partner rejection

    • Condemning the partner

    • No more desire for sex with the partner

    • Unfathomable fears

    • Isolation

    • Listlessness & excessive demands

    • Suicidal tendencies
