When 1 in 3 women in the U.S. are experiencing birth trauma, I knew we had to have this important conversation with Carla Sargent.

Carla Sargent is a home-birthing mother of three, an ex-midwife, an educator, an author, a podcast host, and the founder of her birth trauma support and education business, Healing Birth.

Through her holistic and unique Healing Birth work, Carla has helped hundreds of families find healing after a traumatic birth and prepare for a positive and empowering next birth.

She has also worked with a vast array of birth keepers, helping them to understand the causes and impacts of birth trauma, including its prevention and how to support the healing process.


In this episode, we are sharing:

  • Why we're else seeing a significant rise in birth trauma and what Carla believes to be the root cause.
  • How birth trauma differs from a challenging experience and how hormones play a role.
  • Why birth trauma matters and is relevant to postpartum healing.
  • The processing steps Carla walks her clients through and how moms can get started healing.

This is an episode you'll want to hear, especially as a new mom or someone who supports them!
