This birth healing package is for anyone who gave birth in any way and at any time in the past....from 4 months to 40 years ago. (Also applicable to partners), and feels they would like closure.
What happens during (and after) the birth of our children matters, and if you experienced trauma during that time - however small - it can affect your life for years. If we don't deal with it, it stays with us.
This supportive package is my unique bringing together of several specialist therapeutic modalities to help free you from the niggles and sad feelings you may have, allowing you to heal and finally feel more positive around your peri-natal experience. Many programs just deal with the mental aspects of birth trauma. This healing takes place on a physical, emotional and energetic/soul level.
Usually five specialist sessions, over one or two months, in person or online, include:
Birth/s debrief (optional - you choose if you want to talk)
Personal coaching session to establish your needs/wishes
3-Step Rewind* - process for healing emotions attached to memory - a very effective process (see more details below)
Meditation/Hypnosis/Energy Balance - very gentle yet powerful tools to embody the positive changes and healing from within, on a physical, mental, emotional and energy level. A personalised meditation/hypnosis is included.
Individually, all the above is worth £350.
Together as the Birth Healing Package, it's currently only £195
Add on a Specialist Birth Healing Massage (Bedford) for £80
"I experienced a traumatic birth with my first baby 4 years ago which left me suffering with PTSD. I was taking medication to manage this and was offered CBT from the NHS. This condition had effected my life terribly and I was struggling with intimacy, sadness, flashbacks and feelings of anger and mistrust towards health professionals who were involved in my pregnancy. The CBT helped a bit, but the real catalyst for change was the 3 Step Rewind [birth healing] sessions with Pippa. I definitely did not believe that this could help me in the way that it did, it seemed way too simple to fix my suffering which had gone on for years, but I felt significantly better after the first session and more so after the second.
I almost didn't believe how much better I felt and sceptically wondered if the positive effect would "wear off", but months later it still hasn't. Having this treatment enabled me to go on to have a positive birth experience (even though in the end the birth was a bit complicated) which would not have been possible without the 3 step rewind.
I would highly, highly recommend working with Pippa with any of her services and would absolutely encourage anyone who has had a bad experience with birth to consider the 3 step rewind sessions, they really have changed my life for the better" - Amanda
*3 Step Rewind Programme
I am a practitioner of the The 3 Step Rewind Method, which is a gentle and safe way of working with parents to lift the heavy feelings and symptoms that can remain after a difficult or traumatic birth or any other perinatal trauma.
Essentially, this is a 3-session programme that takes you through a process (in guided relaxation) to help re-code, or interrupt the way our brains deal with upsetting experiences, thereby decreasing our stress levels when we recall it.
If you have had a birth or other perinatal experience that you don't feel positive about, that makes you feel upset to think about or that you would describe as traumatic, but that you feel ready to move on from,, this programme may well be helpful for you.
What happens during 3-Step Rewind? There are 3 sessions, usually taking place over the space of 1-2 weeks. The sessions allow you to talk about your experience and how differently you would like to feel. Then through guided relaxation and visualisation I take you through a simple yet effective process to help you feel more positive and calm.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU ARE IN CONTROL during this process:
You can discuss the process with me without obligation before booking to see if this feels the right programme for you.
Only if you feel ready to address this matter.
You can ask to stop at any time
You only have to talk about what you want to
I will listen without judgement
I am not going to "treat" you, or try and counsel you; I won't try to analyse anything, or delve into your past etc.... you don't even have to talk about your experience if you don't want to, I'll simply take you through the process, which you can choose to stop at any time.
As a Doula I know about what can attribute to a negative birth experience; I know about the nuances of birth and maternity care. I don't work for the NHS or care providers, and therefore my only interest in this process is that you feel an improvement afterwards. I am passionate about parents recovering from feeling upset about their experience, to then be able to move on, feeling more positivity through their parenting journey.
Please contact Pippa to book or have a chat about whether the Birth Healing package may be suitable for you.
After a traumatic birth experience I tried my best to put it to the back of my mind. I couldn't talk about my labour without getting upset and I couldn't watch anything about birth on TV. I would also get emotional listening to others' birth stories.
After the 3-Step Rewind sessions with Pippa, my outlook on my birth experience has completely changed. The gentle and mindful approach allowed me to actively deal with my emotions and get closure, whilst changing how I now look at the experience in a more positive way.
It has been so beneficial and I really recommend to those who are struggling to come to terms with their labour or any other traumatic situation. - Kate
The 3-Step process was extremely useful in guiding me towards thinking about the birth of my daughter in a different way. Following the process I now feel able to focus much more on the positive aspects of her birth and am much more accepting of the more difficult things that occurred.
Pippa is the perfect person to help you through the process, and I personally found it very useful to discuss birth experiences in this relaxing, informal way. I have slept better since our sessions and have even stopped having dreams about my baby's birth and our time in hospital. If you are struggling to process some of your emotions after a traumatic birth experience then I highly recommend giving this a go.
As long as you feel ready and are prepared to approach it with an open mind, it will definitely help you to move forward. - Dina
