Solace for Mothers with Birth Trauma

Birth can be beautiful for some women. And for some women, difficult deliveries bring fear, pain, grief, isolation, anger, and shame for months or even years.

Talking by phone to a trained and sympathetic peer counselor can help a mother to come to terms with the feelings and thoughts she is afraid to say aloud to anyone else. Calls are free and confidential. Monthly in-person facilitated support meetings allow women to come together to cry and to laugh. Call 877-SOLACE4 – sharing, understanding, and healing.

Please browse our web site to learn more about Solace for Mothers. If you work with birthing women, please offer us as a resource. We are please to have launched two online communities where women and those who support them can connect around birth trauma concerns.
