What is the Survivor Mums Companion Programme?
Survivor Mums Companion is a programme designed to support pregnant women who have a history of childhood trauma who are at risk of, or are experiencing, PTSD symptoms during pregnancy.
The programme is for expectant mums before 28th week of pregnancy. The programme aims to reduce symptoms of trauma – which can be physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect – and improve maternal mental health.
It explores pregnancy and birth, PTSD symptoms, supports women to calm intense emotions and tackles any worries she may have about parenting and bonding with baby.
