Attention midwives, perinatal professionals and birth workers...


The First-Steps Guide to Trauma-Responsive Care

Do you want to learn the very first steps that can make a difference in supporting individuals who have experienced trauma during pregnancy or childbirth?

It’s through your language. Language is powerful. What we say and how we say it can have a significant impact on the people we are speaking to – often much more than we realise. This can be particularly true for people who have gone through trauma at some point in their lives. Between 62-68% of people will have been exposed to at least one traumatic event by the age of 17. In childbirth alone, 1 in 3 women experience trauma as a result of their birth. As perinatal health and support professionals, the reality is that we may never be fully aware of the traumatic experiences our clients have faced. We need to work in a way that is sensitive to the fact that it is highly likely that the person in front of us has in fact experienced a traumatic event which may impact the outcome of your provision of care.


Which is why I’ve created this 28-page guide for you.

Inside you will discover 5 simple and actionable tips that will provide you with the clarity and confidence you need to respond to trauma effectively so your clients will not only feel safe when working with you, but you will be supporting them to gain the maximum impact from your care.

You’ll learn:

• The 6 signs that show you’re ready to become trauma-responsive in your work.
• The easiest way to start working with clients who have experienced perinatal trauma.
• 5 simple changes you can make to your client interactions today to effectively respond to trauma disclosures and lay the foundations for trauma-responsive practice.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to enhance your skills as a birth worker or perinatal professional. Download your guide now and take the first steps towards becoming trauma-responsive in your practice – in a way that complements it rather than complicating it.

Fiona Rogerson

I’m Fiona, a perinatal and trauma specialist counsellor with over 12 years of experience working with perinatal clients across various fields – antenatally as a childbirth educator, in the birth space as a doula, and postnatally as a postnatal doula and trauma counsellor.  Together, these experiences continue to give me a unique perspective on perinatal trauma, it’s far reaching impacts, and the work that can be done in this space.

In 2019 I began sharing the knowledge I had gained around perinatal trauma through the provision of trainings and workshops to health and support professionals across various industries.

Through this work I’ve noticed many limiting beliefs that prevent health professionals from stepping into the arena of support for their clients whom have experienced trauma – often when it’s needed most. In this guide I’ll show you how simple it can be to confidently take the first steps toward providing this much needed support.
