The Heavy Flow Podcast Episode 08: Birth Trauma with Olivia Scobie

This week I’m talking to Olivia Scobie, a social work therapist who specializes in perinatal mood, birth trauma, and maternal mental health. We get deep into my personal birth trauma story and then Olivia describes the four types of birth trauma, how birth trauma is different from postpartum depression, and how to get help if you’ve experienced trauma in childbirth.

CW: birth trauma, sexual violence.
