(Birth Trauma and Perinatal Support)
BTAPS is a monthly meetup, taking place on the first Thursday each month, 7pm -8.30pm.
It is for those who are experiencing or have been affected by a traumatic birth and/or perinatal (antenatal and/or postnatal) mental health changes.
This is a peer led support group & is a safe space for people to share their experiences, if they wish, to share advice, tips & practical tools, as well as resources.
This is a very relaxed environment with no pressure to speak out.
This is also a group that is taking action to explain to others what the terms BT and Perinatal actually mean!
It is open to anyone affected by these issues, such as mothers, fathers & extended family.
We ask for a £2 per person for the continuation of the group, as well as refreshments and biscuits of course- they are very important! lol!
Expect lots of honesty and laughs too!
Pregnancy & baby loss continues to be a taboo subject.
Even though it is estimated that 1 in 4 pregnancies will end with a heartbreaking loss, those sadly affected often grieve in silence.
In a bid to break this stigma we aim to give you as parents, when ready, the time, space and support, to discuss your loss and to remember your precious babies, taken too soon.
This is a peer led group, it is not run by health professionals, but by parents who have been through similar experiences to you.
It aims to be a relaxed forum which is open to both men and women who have been affected by the loss of a much loved and wanted baby no matter what stage of pregnancy or infancy your loss may have occurred.
We aim to provide you with a safe and supportive place where you can share your thoughts, feelings and experiences with people who really do understand what you have been through.
The group will run on the second Wednesday of every month at 7pm. We ask for £2.50 per person for the continuation of the groups, refreshments, snacks and materials.
