Counselling service aims to reduce miscarriage stress

  • Comment

A Suffolk midwife has set up a counselling service with a difference for women who have experienced a miscarriage.

Sheila Thody, an independent midwife, will use the theory of psycho-neuro-immunology to reduce stress thereby helping future chances of pregnancy.

Ms Thody said: ‘Psycho-neuro-immunology uses the interaction between mind and body to reduce stress and hormone levels which can affect future pregnancies. It’s down to connecting the way the women think to try to get a more positive outcome.’

However Guay Ong, regional officer for the RCM said she was not aware of any current research on the method adding: ‘For any service women buy into, they should get written information so that they can do their own research before taking part. If it works, good for them, but it may not be for everyone.’
