For new moms, birth recovery can be a significant struggle. Labor and delivery itself can be a traumatic experience for some young mothers. However, postpartum PTSD is a subject often not acknowledged as a serious part of birth recovery.
Mommy Media is a resource to help young mothers with postpartum issues
I am encouraged to see such a resource as Mommy Media, and my hope is that will be a resource for our young moms who need some support during this time of birth recovery.
New Mommy Media, a media company creating podcasts for new and expecting parents, launched a short report on birth trauma recovery, as well as a podcast on how to cope with postpartum PTSD. It features expert advice from professional childbirth educator Shelley Rahim.
Postpartum PTSD or birth trauma refers to a variety of physical and emotional conditions that affect new mothers.
This type of trauma typically results depression, powerlessness, inability to communicate, alienation and various other unhealthy feelings.
With approximately 9% of new mothers experiencing some form of postpartum PTSD, it is essential for new parents to be able to handle birth trauma appropriately. New Mommy Media strives to offer the necessary resources to manage postpartum PTSD through its latest report and podcast episode.
The report features professional advice from childbirth educator Shelley Rahim, helping both mothers and their close ones understand and manage birth trauma in a caring and empathetic manner.
Be aware postpartum PTSD can be supressed.
One important issue regarding postpartum PTSD is it is often suppressed by the mother as she confronts those around her with the lack of empathy. This attitude tends to hamper emotional healing, which is why it is important for anyone interacting with a new mother to develop an understanding, attentive and caring relationship through careful and empathetic listening.
The New Mommy Media report offers recovery suggestions for mothers suffering from birth trauma. It includes writing feelings in a journal and discussing problems with other mothers who have gone through similar experiences.
New Mommy Media has also launched a podcast episode on postpartum PTSD called “Healing from Birth Trauma”. The podcast discusses the various causes of birth trauma, some of its psychological implications for the mother and her family, and the most effective ways to recover from it.
The podcast episode is available at http://newmommymedia.com/episode/healing-from-birth-trauma.
Thank you Mommy Media.
We appreciate you providing a resource that will help young moms cope with birth recovery and postpartum PTSD. No matter the level of trauma that is part of this process, this support is essential for those who are bringing new babies into our world.
