Parenting through Birth Trauma with Mama Manon Depre & Dr Erin Bowe

Episode 38 of Birth Trauma Training for birth Workers the podcast

The interview with my guest today took about a year to coordinate! This happens a lot on this podcast because babies get born, we get sick, there’s the whole parenting and home schooling in a pandemic thing. There are times when I feel like I can barely run a bath let alone run a podcast, so if you’re feeling frazzled, know you are not alone!

If you are interested in trauma informed parenting, then you may have heard of the lovely Mama Manon.

No matter how much we cognitively know how we want to parent our kids, and we read books, and we take courses, we still get triggered. We still struggle with feeling resentment, rage, numbness and depletion. As a parent, I personally find Manon’s videos and resources so helpful. When she posted a video last year about using somatic experiencing with her own traumatic birth, I knew we would get on like a house on fire. Self-compassion for our traumas is something we are all working on.

Manon has a voice that makes you feel like you’re being wrapped in a warm blanket. She combines Aware Parenting and somatic experiencing to offer deep, gentle and empowering support. She chats to me today about her birth, her healing and growth and the lessons that come with working alongside your child in that process.

Manon offers 1-1 sessions online and in person. She also has online programs and workshops all around Australia. You can find her at


If you want to work with me, I support families through birth trauma with counselling and coaching for trauma including strategies to birth again, if this is their goal.
I run monthly group supervision for psychologists interested in birth trauma and perinatal work and of course I have two online birth trauma courses.

Birth trauma training for birth workers the online course now has over 650 enrolments. Most people who have never bought a course on Udemy before are able to snap it up for $14 or less. Rest assured it will remain under $99 for the foreseeable future.

My other course, More Than a Healthy Baby: How to Cope With Birth Trauma is perfect for people who are navigating their own trauma. It’s an a la carte menu of some of my best tools and strategies. It’s not a replacement for therapy but it’s a starting point. Again, it’s under $100 (usually way less).

Udemy also supports affiliates. This means that if you qualify, you can use a unique code for either of my courses to add to your website, socials or to give clients and you will receive a percentage of the course fee. It’s free to register, it’s just a bit of work to get yourself signed up
