Birth Story Listeners
Claire Kay is a mother of 3 teenagers from North Wales. Claire experienced a traumatic birth in 2000 which affected her mental health with PTSD/PND symptoms which remained undiagnosed. Finding the BTA helped Claire to make sense of what happened to her. Claire has founded organisations to help other women including: the Birth Trauma Christian Encouragement Group & a local peer support group called Birth Story Listeners. She is involved in her local Maternity Services, RCOG Women’s Voices partnership, the PBM. She writes campaign poetry, articles, & offers local training to student midwives to improve awareness of perinatal mental health.
