I’m delighted to announce I’ll be speaking at the 8th Annual Birth Trauma Summit, hosted by Make Birth Better*. This is taking place on the 2nd and 3rd of May (I’m speaking on the 2nd).
My soundbite session is titled “Trauma from a ‘High BMI’ perspective”. I’ll talk about the commonly reported experiences of people pregnant in bigger bodies, and how this can affect subsequent pregnancies.
Most importantly, I’ll look at what we can do differently to reduce birth trauma while still providing safe, evidence based care.
If you’d like to attend, but can’t listen live, Don’t worry! There are also options to be able to access the content for a week or a year.

Many thanks to Make Birth Better for inviting me – I look forward to hearing all the other speakers!
