“I first came into contact with the Birth Trauma Counselling a few years ago. At that stage it was probably fair to say that, at times, I was near to suicide. After the birth of my child, I had been misdiagnosed by my GP with post natal depression, and was not getting any help at all from any NHS services such as health visitors - my GP surgery no longer had a full time health visitor - or from the hospital where I had given birth; I think they do not recognise the condition, and have failed to offer any assistance despite correspondence with them.
Quite simply I do not believe that I would be here without the help of Birth Trauma Counselling. Through Birth Trauma Counselling, I was able to find out more about the condition, identify a local hospital where I could get further support, and more than anything was able to regularly talk to someone who understood.
