1 in 3 people experiencing a traumatic birth is WAY too high.
The statistics showing upwards of 15% of midwives and obstetricians developing PTSD from vicarious trauma is WAY too high.
My name is Dr Erin Bowe. This trauma course is like no other. I have the professional background as a clinical psychologist of 10+ years AND the lived experience of two traumatic births. I am the bridge between the research about birth trauma, and the lived experience.
I’ve used these experiences as a conduit for personal growth and strength. I believe that trauma can actually be your biggest teacher. I’m here to teach you how to navigate birth trauma, so that you can have a sustainable career as a birth worker.
This work isn't all darkness and shadow! I teach you to find lightness in without making light of trauma.
You can make phenomenal change. You just have to decide. I can teach you to align your thoughts, words and behaviours to create the strength and resilience you want. To feel confident, calm and like you're actually making a difference to birthing outcomes.
This course is specifically designed for you to feel a massive shift in how you think about trauma, and how you are showing up in the world to be with other people in theirs. Make the first step towards changing birth outcomes. For birthing people, for the babies, and for yourself.

I’m a Clinical & Perinatal psychologist and coach with 10+ years experience in mental health. I’ve had two traumatic births myself! So I am the perfect person to lead this training. I am the bridge between the research and the lived experience of growth in the postnatal period.
I’m a board-approved supervisor – I have trained and supervised Psychologists to reach their endorsement for 5+ years. Mentor to mental health professionals Australia-wide and beyond. I'm also the author of More Than a Healthy Baby: Finding Strength & Growth After Birth Trauma.
I’m light, I’m quirky and I truly believe that doing ‘the Work’ doesn’t have to be all dark and shadow.
