Raising awareness and fast, effective & compassionate treatment for women, birth partners & healthcare professionals affected by perinatal trauma and Tokophobia. Delivered by midwives Miriam Martin & Gemma Nealon in Edinburgh & Lothains. 


Birth Trauma Scotland has been founded by  Gemma & Miriam who between them have supported thousands of parents during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period.  Through both their personal and professional experience they have seen a huge need for support and recovery from the debilitating effects of trauma. They are both passionate about not only treating perinatal trauma but also raising awareness about this under-recognised but so easily treatable condition.  

They are both trained in and offer a number of techniques including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Birth Trauma Resolution therapy and Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). Gemma and Miriam are passionate about sharing this innovative and transformational treatment. When seeking treatment you can feel reassured that you will be safely treated by well qualified practitioners. In addition to their experience as midwives, their in depth training is accredited by the Royal College of Midwives and the Human Given Institute. They adhere to a strict code of conduct which requires them to receive regular supervision and engage in continuous professional development. Miriam & Gemma are regularly invited to talk to healthcare professionals to raise awareness of perinatal trauma and are proud to be part of the NHS Lothian Perinatal Mental Health Network.
