When Should I start a process?

  • You may choose to come for a Birth Oriented Therapy session at any stage you wish.
  • It is possible to start a process when you are only just considering whether or not to get pregnant. That is the gate to the field of birth..
  • It is also possible to process a traumatic birth experience, even if it took place many years ago.
  • A good reason to come for a session is the feeling that something wants your attention, (e.g. any of the issues mentioned in the list above, or other issue related to your experience of pregnancy/ birth/ breastfeeding/ motherhood). It feels like now would be a good time to pause and be with it, and allow it to develop.
  • Birth Oriented Therapy directs the information that comes up in a session to support you in your current situation in life. The direction of movement is forward.
