This handout explores the whole area of trauma related to a difficult birth or medical interventions or diagnosis for your child at any stage. The handout will cover the following areas:
  • What is a trauma/stress response in the body and why does it happen?
  • How can we understand the feelings/symptoms that we experienced at the time in more detail?
  • How can we understand the impact of this trauma on ourselves as a parent and on our relationships?
  • What can we do we remain in the 'green zone' (a place of calm) despite the fact that we may still face challenging situations with our child.
