Jamie is a fitness professional, nutrition therapist and Mum of one. Her birth story involved a drug free 24 hr labour with a vacuum and episiotomy. Post partum she experienced a major hemorrhage and large amount of retained placenta. This resulted in 3 nights 4 days away from baby, a blood and iron infusion as well as surgery for placenta removal. In addition, her husband was also unexpectedly incapacitated due to major pancreatic tumor removal. Her baby therefore started in neonatal care.
Feeling completely powerless and with a lack of support, Jamie utilised psychology services, support networks such as ABTA as well as nutrition and exercise to overcome challenges and negative feelings associated with her birth trauma. She aims to assist others in feeling supported, understood and less alone in their journey with birth trauma and is currently completing her specialty qualification in personal training pregnant and postnatal women.
