Description

This trial focusses on pregnant women abuse survivors who experience symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It will further test the emerging evidence base from studies in the US that completion of a structured listening programme of 10 maternal self study modules can improve perinatal outcomes (mental and physical) and improve the woman’s confidence in her parenting capabilities. The intervention addresses: the mother’s trauma and her reactions throughout the childbearing process; how best she may be able to identify, prepare for and meet care needs both for herself and for her baby; and how to access social and emotional support and services.
