Services we offer

Our free drop-in sessions are informal discussions on pregnancy, birth or parenting-related topics. They give you an opportunity to find out what Nurture Parents can offer and to join a group of parents sharing their experiences. Nurture Parents does not give advice. However, by listening and sharing, parents can find they have resolved the issue that was on their mind when they arrived.  Sharing experiences is a great way to receive information and understand the different options and outcomes that are available,

Your Birth Month Bumps Group will enable you to get to know parents who are due around the same time as you.  Building a group of your peers is a powerful way to create a support network and find like-minded parents you can turn to once babies arrive.

Birth Trauma Resolution Therapy

The Birth Trauma Association estimates that 10,000 women in Britain each year are treated for PTSD as a result of a traumatic birth. It is difficult to have accurate figures as many women do not seek help.This may be due to the stigma that surrounds mental health or the fear that you may be seen as an unfit mother.

Sadly, women and their partners who have experienced birth trauma can frequently suffer from mental health problems in the period after the birth, which can significantly affect and detract from what could be one of the most wonderful times in their life. 

Birth Trauma Resolution Therapy is completely safe and works for the majority of affected women (and their partners if appropriate) in only 1-3 sessions.

Other approaches can take 8-12 sessions.

These are one-to-one sessions held in a small, private, comfortable room.

In the first session the practitioner will listen as you talk about your experience and teach you breathing techniques to reduce your anxiety and help you relax.

The second and any subsequent sessions involve relaxation, guided imagery and the Birth Trauma Resolution Therapy exercise known as the rewind technique.
