About This Course

Pregnancy and birth are profound life experiences, but for many individuals, they can also be fraught with trauma and loss. This course delves into the complexities of traumatic pregnancy experiences, including infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, and traumatic birthing experiences. Through a trauma-informed lens, we explore the profound impact of these experiences on perinatal mental health, as well as strategies for providing compassionate support to those navigating trauma during pregnancy and beyond.

Key Learning Objectives:

  1. Understanding Trauma in Pregnancy: Learn how traumatic pregnancy experiences, such as infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, and traumatic birthing experiences, can impact perinatal mental health and contribute to conditions like PTSD.

  2. Addressing Reproductive Health Trauma: Identify the impact of sexual assault, incest, and childhood trauma on reproductive health, and explore trauma-informed approaches to supporting individuals affected by these experiences.

  3. Trauma-Informed Practices: Explore trauma-informed practices for supporting individuals navigating traumatic pregnancy experiences, including strategies for creating safe and supportive environments, fostering trust, and promoting healing and resilience.
