Part one of two: EMDR as a treatment modality for post-traumatic stress disorder (childbirth onset) during a subsequent pregnancy

Description

Research by doctoral candidate Claire Stramrood and her colleagues of the Netherlands was published in the March, 2012 edition of Birth, The Patient Observer: Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing for the Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress following Childbirth. The researchers were evaluating the possibility of using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as a treatment modality for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) (childbirth onset) during a subsequent pregnancy. The researchers worked with three women who experienced traumatic births, were diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (childbirth onset) and were now subsequently pregnant again. The researchers hypothesized EMDR could be used to reduce the womens’ symptoms and improve confidence about the current pregnancy and impending birth.
