Traumatic Birth Recovery
3 Step Rewind
No woman deserves to feel less than her best after her caesarean. Work with me 1-2-1 to regain your emotional wellbeing.
Before your caesarean you felt great. You had planned your baby’s outfits, you’d colour-coordinated the nursery and read all the baby sleep books. You’d kept up with your pilates, been for the odd massage and weren’t even missing your weekend cocktails with the girls. Baby was coming and things were good.
But then the birth happened and all of a sudden life as you knew it changed. Things were a blur, everything felt confusing. You had lost control. It was not what you expected. It was not what you had planned.
And when you got home, perhaps new ‘not so great’ feelings have surfaced. Feelings you feel guilty even for feeling.
Perhaps you feel angry, resentful or anxious. Perhaps you feel distant or numb. Perhaps you feel jealous or bitter. Perhaps you feel on edge, always alert and exhausted.
You never thought having a baby would feel like this.
“The 3 Step Rewind with Alex was a really good experience and after each session I felt relaxed, safe and positive. I am really pleased with how quick and easy it was to feel such a difference.
Before my first session with Alex, I was feeling low and guilty about the birth of my baby. Every time I thought about it, I felt like a heavy cloud was hanging over me and I that the negative elements of the birth overwhelmed any happy memories. I even felt resentful when others talked about their positive birth experiences and it was affecting my relationships with my family.
I wanted to finally feel like my old self again and to get rid of these negative emotions and be able to feel calm and happy when I thought of the birth.
Alex explained to me how the sessions would enable this and from the very first session, she immediately made me feel calm and supported and I felt my feelings were really listened to without judgement. Even though I was discussing the past trauma, it always felt like a safe space to do that and in fact the sessions themselves were really relaxing and it felt really good to take some time for myself to finally process how I have been feeling about the birth.
Alex prepared me a tailored audio relaxation to listen to in between the sessions and I found this really helpful in winding down after a busy day at work. I actually had the best night sleep in months after the first session.
I was also really surprised by how quickly I saw results. After feeling negative about the birth for so long, I finally felt more zen about the it, and whilst I know it was a difficult birth I am no longer overwhelmed by negative feelings or trauma and feel more positive as a result.
I would highly recommend 3 Step Rewind sessions with Alex if you are feeling burdened by a negative birth experience. I wish I had known about this sooner.”

What is Traumatic Birth Recovery 3 Step Rewind?
Traumatic Birth Recovery (TBR) 3 Step Rewind is a very safe, very gentle technique which aims to neutralise symptoms of trauma, which may include perinatal anxiety, difficulty sleeping or feelings of guilt and sadness. It is a very effective, non-invasive NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) technique which is performed when you are in a deeply relaxed state.
This is how it works…..
I’m Alex Ballarini
When you’ve been through an upsetting caesarean experience, it can be really tough to make sense of all of the different emotions that you may be feeling, when you’re already exhausted and consumed by the demands of motherhood.
Perhaps you feel confused. None of it makes sense, after all, you prepared so well for the birth. You had everything planned.
As you lie awake, contemplating your scar, it feels SO UNFAIR. On the worst days, it feels like the birth was taken from you. You’d never say it out loud, but you can’t help but feel like you ‘failed at birth’. That is such a hard place to be, I know.
Honey, we need to talk!
I help women who are feeling this way relieve these non-serving emotions and move forward into a new phase, the weight of these heavy emotions finally lifted.
I’ll hold the space for you to process your emotions, so that you can feel confident, calm and in control when talking about your birth experience. Finally you can join in the conversation at mums groups without worrying about bursting into tears.
I believe that every woman should feel immensely proud of giving birth and should be able to harness their immense strength and courage as they journey through motherhood. I believe that time spent with family should be free of insecurities and every woman should live to their full potential as a mother. Every woman deserves this. Every single one.
Are you ready to move into your next phase with me?
Having experienced my own upsetting caesarean birth in 2014, my eyes were opened to a brand new range of emotions – many of these feelings were painful and heavy. Shouldn’t I feel more grateful to have a healthy baby? Isn’t that enough? What the hell was wrong with me?
On the outside, I was coping quite well. But every time my baby cried, I wondered if it was a result of the birth experience. Was he ok? Did he remember it? It was a dark shadow hanging over my experience of motherhood.
I worked through these emotions alone, I thought to myself ‘motherhood is supposed to be hard and tiring isn’t it?’. I scrambled through the days, trying to find my feet emotionally as well as physically (oh, and let’s not forget that ‘little’ job of looking after a baby too!).
Fast forward to today. I have left behind the corporate career I had for 10 years and have devoted myself to serving women in being able to flourish during the perinatal period. Because women being able to flourish matters. It matters a huge, huge amount.
Every single pregnancy matters. Every single birth matters. Every single baby matters. Every single mother matters.
Over the past four years I have trained as a Doula and Hypnobirthing Practitioner with a special focus on perinatal trauma and the emotional wellness of mothers. I have trained with Alexandra Heath at Traumatic Birth Recovery in London in TBR 3 Step Rewind. I attend regular supervision sessions to ensure that my services are always safe and up to date.
I believe in supporting mothers to give themselves the time, care and love they deserve but so infrequently experience. Empowering and encouraging mothers is my ‘thing’ and I want to see you thrive, lady.
I am not a doctor and I won’t ‘cure’ you. You are not broken.
I will hold the space for you so that you can explore your emotions and harness the power of your own healing. I will return your power to you.
I work from a place of compassion, love and genuine respect for all of you amazing women.
I would be honoured to walk with you on your journey to confidence, calm and pride.
Will TBR 3 Step Rewind work for me?
It can be hard to believe that such a gentle, non-invasive process can lift trauma symptoms so quickly, however TBR 3 Step Rewind has been used time and time again to support mums (and dads!) to finally feel the weight of the negative emotion lifted. Many mums go on to enjoy a parenthood experience that they never thought would be possible before the TBR 3 Step Rewind. If you are ready to feel better, I am here to support you in creating the life with your child that you deserve.
I’m not sure I want to invest in this at the moment.
How you feel matters to the whole family.
The TBR 3 Step Rewind is an investment in your own long-term wellbeing. Ask yourself, what is it worth to you and your family if you were to fully enjoy motherhood. What would become possible for you if you were to finally feel free of negative emotion?
What is the investment?
