What is the 3 Steps Rewind Method?
Using the MAM 3 Step Rewind Method, you will be shown, step by step, how to ease the distressing symptoms that can accompany a difficult or traumatic birth. This method has been specifically put together for birth workers. You will learn how the mind can hold onto upsetting memories, and why it is so difficult to just “move on” or “forget about it”. The 3 step rewind method will help you to unlock and process the memory for yourself and others, allowing them freedom from their distress, so that they can get on with life once again.
What problems do people experience and in what way that will be relieved?
As a birth worker, if you find yourself feeling helpless when hearing about some-one’s traumatic birth, this method can help. Listening to some-one who is struggling with ongoing feelings of dread, horror, regret, anger, distress, guilt, tearfulness, is not easy. And it’s even harder if you don’t know how to help. Empathy and great listening skills are invaluable, but the 3 step rewind method gives you something to add to this. The 3 step rewind method will give you a valuable tool for helping others move on from a difficult birth. It isn’t always true that time heals. Sometimes, you can accelerate the healing using this tried and tested method. There’s no better feeling than knowing that you have actually made a difference to some-one’s life.
What results do people experience
Time and again we hear back from delighted practitioners, who are discovering the joy of being able to really help people move on from a bad birth. Adding the 3 step rewind method to your repertoire will result in you being able to dramatically increase your impact when trying to help people move on from a previous bad birth.
For Who is it?
If your work entails helping people to move on from a difficult birth, then this method is for you. If you already develop professional relationships with parents, and spend time getting to know them, listening to their distress with a view to helping them, then this method will give you an extra tool to enhance your work. It is for any birth professional (midwives, counselors, doulas, psychotherapists, psychologists, antenatal teachers, hypnobirthing instructors, prenatal massage therapists, prenatal yoga instructors, health visitors and breastfeeding counselors) who regularly works with parents through the perinatal stage.
Approximately 30 % of all parents in the UK will describe their birth as traumatic. That’s nearly a 3rd of all parents. The scale of the problem is too great for mental health professionals alone to handle. Currently many parents are deterred from seeking help via traditional mental health pathways because of the stigma attached to mental health and the perception that it will take many sessions and commitment to feel well.
