Effectiveness of EMDR treatment in PTSD after childbirth: A randomized controlled trial protocol

Description

A traumatic experience of childbirth is an important public health issue (1; 2). Approximately 1-2% of women suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following childbirth (3). To date, no large research project has attempted to evaluate psychotherapeutic interventions for women suffering from PTSD after childbirth in a randomized controlled trial (4). Qualitative pilot studies and clinical expertise suggest that eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) treatment is a highly successful psychotherapy for women suffering from traumatic birth (5;6). © 2013 Nordic Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Acta Obstetricia etGynecologica Scandinavica.
