Antenatal Educator Training to Sure Start

Perinatal MENTAL hEALTH tRAINING & Birth TRAUMA SUPPORT course description 

More than a spoonful of sugar ...

Im sure that you have noticed that most perinatal mental health training focuses on signs, symptoms, signposting and diagnoses, right? Now if you are a health care professional then that’s absolutely brilliant. If you are not,  It kinda falls into the “good to know, but can’t I do more ?” category. 

And I suppose you’ve also seen the various birth trauma-rated training on offer? Only perhaps you are concerned that as a “non-psychologist” you may be dabbling unsafely, but you know that the lack of services is crippling your parents, so something has to be done?

I get it – the “push-me-pull-you” of wanting to do more, knowing you can – but how”,  scenario. After all, this is the main reason Antenatal Training UK and BirthWorld exist!

Evidence has shown us we CAN take action in the antenatal period before anything arises to enhance and potentially protect against mental health difficulties. As an Antenatal Teacher or Perinatal worker, with the right training, you are in the perfect position to be actively and safely supporting your parents!

Wouldn’t it a great to give your parents multiple tools to enhance their emotional and mental well-being, and then if they do have difficulties, also be there to support them?

Why you need perinatal mental health training & Birth Trauma support as part of your services

  • 45% of Mothers experience traumatic childbirth.
  • 10% of fathers experience mental health difficulties following birth, but only 3% feel secure enough to seek help.
  • The strongest predictor for the father to experience difficulties, is if the mother also has mental health problems.
  • This support is being requested by parents from their childbirth classes more than breathing techniques, but most classes are yet to catch up with this demand.
