Three Step Rewind Practitioner Training

Do you work in the birth world?

If you do, you will be well aware that there is a huge amount of birth trauma out there.  According to The Birth Trauma Association, Research shows that about 4-5% of women experience PTSD after birth – that’s about 25,000-30,000 a year in the UK.  This is only the people we KNOW about.  Many more will be suffering from PTSD symptoms and many, many more will have experienced a birth that they will have experienced as traumatic and they find difficult to move past… and we haven’t even mentioned the partners, doulas or midwives who might also be experiencing sypmptoms after witnessing a birth they might have found traumatic.

Have you spoken to clients who have experienced any of the following:

Do they find it difficult talking about their birth?

Do they laugh off their disastrous birth experience, claiming you couldn’t make it up if you tried, it was one thing after another?

Are they justifying their negative experiences with phrases such as ‘At least the baby’s ok, that’s all that matters’?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, chances are they have had a difficult birth experience and whilst it is totally normal to feel this way about their baby’s birth, it is NOT ok to feel this way.  It’s especially not ok if they are finding theri negative thoughts are:

  • Intrusive
  • Affect the way they interact with their baby and others around them
  • Are affecting how they feel about the birth of their 2nd or subsequent baby
  • Are preventing them from trying for another baby
  • Making them feel anxious in any way

What Can I Do To Help?

You can train to be a Three Step Rewind Practitioner. The Three Step Rewind is a process you will be able to take your client through.

When we experience a stressful event, the Amygdala – the part of the brain responsible for fight or flight goes into overdrive with the specific aim of getting us to move and get to safety.  Ordinarily, when this happens, you would move! Very quickly! to get away from the perceived danger – this is how we were able to survive when Sabre-tooth Tigers walked the earth, so we wouldn’t become their lunch!  However, when women are in the process of giving birth – or if something is going on during their pregnancy or once their baby has been born (in other words the whole perinatal period) there is nowhere they can actually go – so the amygdala continuously sends adrenalin surging round and round their body with no way of releasing it.  This suspends all logical functioning and the hippocampus – the part of the brain that usually sends experiences to long-term memory stops working.  This means that the experience of their birth stays in their frontal lobe, making their body think it is still happening, which sends the amygdala into overdrive again – because they still can’t run away anywhere – hence creating an intolerable amount of anxiety and stress. 

Over time, because the memory remains un-processed, they may find themself triggered by unrelated circumstances.  For example, the beeping of the supermarket checkout machine reminds them of the beeping of the machines in the hospital, so they find themselves becoming extremely stressed when doing the weekly shop.  Or perhaps they find themselves unable to walk past the hospital because of what happened there, meaning they have to find a different way of walking to the park.

How Do I Train To Be a Three Step Rewind Practitioner?

Training to be a Three Step Rewind Practitioner will enable you to take your clients through a gentle process that will help them to move on and past their difficult experience WITHOUT traumatising them further…

The training course will run over 4 sessions where you will learn, amongst other things:

  • The neurological reasoning behind how difficult feelings can get ‘stuck’ causing repetitive emotional and physical discomfort.
  • The stages of the Three Step Rewind Process and how to take your clients through it smoothly and effectively.
  • How to work safely with your clients and when to signpost and/or refer on if necessary.
  • How to ‘listen’ to your clients empathetically whilst keeping yourself safe.
  • To facilitate conversation that enables your client to move past their ‘problem state’ and focus, instead on a solution focussed outcome.
