The Birth Reflections Service is a listening service for women who wish to explore and reflect on their birth experience in a confidential and supportive environment.
Many women find that they wish to talk about their birth experience, this can be for many individual reasons, all of which are valid. How you feel about your birth matters.
You may wish for greater clarity and understanding about the events surrounding your birth, you might have unresolved questions you would like to explore, or you may simply want to reflect on your birth experience. Some women can feel worried or anxious about giving birth for the first time. Talking with our dedicated birth reflections midwife can help.
The Birth Reflections Service is available to anyone who has given birth in The National Maternity Hospital within the last year, and anyone who is currently pregnant and attending the Hospital.
