Providing assessment, intervention and signposting to parents and carers in Nottinghamshire.
Nottinghamshire Perinatal Trauma & Bereavement Service has been launched by Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
The Trauma & Bereavement Service offers three main pathways of care:
- Treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following birth trauma
- Treatment for severe fear of childbirth – also known as Tokophobia
- Bereavement work relating to the death of a baby or miscarriage at any stage, stillbirth, termination of pregnancy for any reason and neonatal death.
The Perinatal Trauma & Bereavement Service covers Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, excluding Bassetlaw. It has clinic locations across the region and care has been taken to include some locations which are not within maternity environments.
Assessments will take place over MS Teams where possible, and individuals will be supported with the process of downloading and accessing MS Teams. Support will be available on a 1-to-1 or group basis, plus peer support. Some of the group-based interventions are online via MS Teams, whereas others are face-to-face individual or group sessions.
The service offers assessment, intervention and signposting.
Referrals will be made by health professionals in maternity settings.
