This post is also available in: English (Englisch)
Birth psychotherapist is a new role during the labour. We have prenatal and perinatal psychologists. But what about if there is a need for psychological support during the birth in the hospital and home birth setting. Birth psychotherapist can work alone or birth team with doctor, Midwife and doula. Her main role is doing psychotherapeutic sessions before birth and during birth. Of course prenatal and postnatal periods are always important. But there is always a missing point about labour time. So she supports not only birthing mother/father and also birth team.
