Series One: Birth Trauma

Episode One: An interview with Athena Hammond

In this first episode of the Birth Trauma series, we interview Athena Hammond. Athena is a midwife and a psychotherapist, who lives in the beautiful Northern Rivers village of South Golden Beach. She has a background in research and teaching, and has worked in many different ways to support women and families over the past twenty years. Athena holds a PhD with her research centred on birth unit design. She has worked clinically as a midwife in both hospital and homebirth.

Nowadays, Athena is focused on working as a therapist with a range of folks, including women, midwives and obstetricians. She has a special interest in birth trauma, is the mum of a grown up son and makes a mean bowl of guacamole.

We talk with Athena about her work as a therapist, and the what, how and why of birth trauma. We discuss both physical and psychological birth trauma, how it can manifest and different ways to process negative experiences, as well as much much more.
