Pregnancy & Trauma Somatic Therapy with Dr. Jones

Pregnancy can be a magical time in a woman’s life… it can also be a very scary and stressful time. Some women experience severe medical complications, deep emotional challenges, such as fear and uncertainty, or feel like psychological wounds of their past haven’t properly healed. They wonder what kind of mother they will be.

Often times, it’s intimidating for women to share these deeper, more private feelings and concerns verbally. It can make one feel like a “bad person” for having “bad feelings” surrounding Pregnancy and the prospect of Motherhood.

Please know the truth, these feelings and concerns are common and very natural.

The physical demands of Pregnancy, worrying about what labor and delivery will be like, fear of pain, fear of adequacy as a new parent, and feeling like you’re psychologically not ready to care for another so deeply, can preoccupy your mind and increase stress hormones in your body. These stress hormones can trigger a variety of health problems and make the situation even more complicated for both mother and baby. 

Somatic Therapy with Dr. Bobbi Jones can be an essential to for re-wiring deep traumas, current fears, and recurrent negative emotions. Read more about it here.
