Abstract

BACKGROUND: This study investigated the effectiveness of brief midwife-led counseling based on Gamble and colleagues' approach in decreasing post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety symptoms among a group of women who had experienced a traumatic childbirth. METHODS: From among 270 pregnant women screened to participate in the study, 90 women experienced a traumatic childbirth. They were randomly assigned into two groups: intervention (n�=�45) and control group (n�=�45). We did a face-to-face counseling session within 72�h after giving birth and a telephone counseling session four to 6 weeks after giving birth for the intervention group. The control group only received the postnatal routine care. The outcome measures were post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety symptoms. RESULTS: At the three-month follow-up, the intervention group showed significantly higher improvement on post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety symptoms compared to the control group. CONCLUSIONS: Gamble and colleagues' midwife-led brief counseling could be an effective approach to reduce psychological distress of women who have experienced a traumatic childbirth.
