Doctor Erin Bowe

Clinical Psychologist & Coach

Hi, I’m so glad you found me!

I’m Dr Erin Bowe. I’m a Clinical & Perinatal Psychologist and coach in Victoria, Australia. I’ve had two traumatic births myself and this became the caveat to do the work that I do now.  My purpose and passion is getting people to find strength and growth after trauma. 

What am I up to in 2020?

Burrowing away to finish writing a book on birth trauma

Creating a really accessible, practical course to help parents cope with birth trauma

Supporting people through my More than a Healthy Baby 1:1 support package (and offering one off birth debriefs)

Continuing to support and train birth workers through my Birth Trauma Training for Birth Workers online course (endorsed by the Australian College of Midwives for 16 CPD points)

Running the Birth Trauma Training podcast


I grew up on the apple isle in a city (yes, technically Devonport is a city) once described by Lonely Planet as a “sedentary, mildly menacing place”. I then moved to Hobart for university where I managed to live in not just one, but two houses where a murder-suicide was committed. I finally made the decision to move from St Kilda to the country when I came home one day, exhausted and suffering with morning sickness to find not just one but five men urinating on my front gate!

Sadly, I can only speak one language but convince myself I can actually speak two, because I don’t need the subtitles on for Ken Loach movies. I grew up playing English interpreter for Glaswegian parents, but I cannot roll my ‘R’s.

My experience in psychology is pretty wide ranging. I’ve worked with people as young as 9 months and as old as 90 years. There have been mums, murderers, Olympic athletes, chess champions, sex workers, and CEOs. I believe that everyone has a story, and am always interested in listening to yours.
