Season 3 Episode 2: Psychological Trauma in Birth with Dr. Kathleen Kendall-Tackett of Praeclarus Press

Bringing a baby home can be one of the best days of a family’s life, but what happens when they also bring home birth trauma at the same time? While only 9% of women who give birth in the US experience birth PTSD, trauma can affect up to 25% of postpartum women. Today we are joined by Dr. Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, a health psychologist, IBCLC, owner of Praeclarus Press, and editor-in-chief of two peer-reviewed journals. She takes time out to talk to us about Psychological Trauma in Birth and how we can help to prevent or mitigate its effects on the mother and family.


Listen and Learn:

  • What can cause psychological birth trauma and what it looks like
  • What would change if we always considered the impact of how we treat mothers and whether it fosters oxytocin
  • Where parents can turn for help if trauma has occurred
  • How trauma can be treated and minimized with quick response
