Are Our Traumas Protecting Us From Pregnancy?
Apr 26, 2023
The more couples we work with, the more we see a recurring theme of negative self-talk, limiting beliefs and women believing they are not worthy of healing. Some don’t even believe they are worthy of their baby. The more we unpack this, we discover traumas, especially around their relationships with the mothers and it got us thinking, are our trauma protecting us from pregnancy?
In other words, our bodies are always working hard to protect us and it is understood nowadays that we store trauma in our bodies. Iit often gets stuck, leading to illness and sometimes even disease. So, if our traumas are stuck and our bodies are sufferinging, then we would be in a state of fight, flight or freeze, a state of constant stress where our bodies are focused on survival not procreation.
So what would happen if we worked on releasing our traumas from the tight grasp they have on our bodies? What would happen if we participated in journaling, meditation, talk therapy, EFT or EMDR? What would change?
A newly published book by Daniel and Gabor Maté, The Myth of Normal : Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture is asking a similar question.
