Passion for an Emerging Area
An area that Dr. Bledsoe is passionate about is using OT for birth trauma. She brings a unique understanding of ways birth trauma can affect human development and works with clients to enhance their developmental needs. Through her intervention process, clients experience improvements in mobility and activities of daily living with increased emotional involvement.
Dr. Bledsoe shares her treatment techniques, improvement outcomes, clinical successes, and methodologies on birth trauma with her clients, fieldwork students, OT practitioners, and other health professionals. As the past president and a current board member of the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health (APPPAH), she has brought OT into the realm of birth trauma and continues to work on developing this emerging area of practice.
