Anxiety is an incredibly common perinatal health issue.
So common in fact that professionals can sometimes be dismissive of the severity of distress that it can cause parents.
Anxiety can be insidious. It can trick sufferers into thinking that something is terribly wrong when it is not. It tells us not to trust ourselves or others. It tells us to stay alone and isolate.
Anxiety creates a fear which prevents us from connecting, engaging and being truly present.
This is hugely problematic for parents and birth professionals who are experiencing anxiety because both roles involve caring for others.
When we can recognise and acknowledge anxiety we have the opportunity to learn from it, lean into it, and grow from it....
- Instead of running away from the thoughts and feelings that are driving anxiety we can face them courageously.
- We can use anxiety as a contrary compass to show us where we need to go.
‘Without a doubt, this [Understanding & Supporting Perinatal Anxiety] and TBR 3 Step Rewind are the most useful and transformative courses that I have undertaken for perinatal mental health support. I use these techniques all the time and have established a managing anxiety workshop for pregnant women to be able to help more people as I haven't got the time to see everyone individually that needs this kind of support. The feedback I have had from women has been unilaterally positive and so valued by them!’

"'I have completed all of Alex's classes so far.
Learning with Traumatic Birth Recovery fits into my family life so well .
I can study in the evenings after work with live evening online classes.
Alex is always so supportive as are all her tutors in the supervision classes.
Everything is so comprehensive and simplified with easy lifelong access which I find great for dipping in and out of.
I totally can vouch for Traumatic Birth Recovery and all its modules plus Alex's authentic supportive teaching.' "
'I find anxiety one of the more complex and tricky conditions to support people through but having the guidance of this course has made it so much easier. Understanding what anxiety actually is really helps parents to consider what is going on in their body and mind and how it can be quietened down.
Being able to use the practical methods included in this course to support expectant and new parents has been revolutionary to my services and I feel so much more confident to recognise the signs that someone may be experiencing anxiety.'
