Was the birth of your baby traumatic for you?Do you know someone who had a near miss/assisted delivery? Here is a short video to explain a little more.
25% of women say that they have experienced trauma during the delivery of their baby. 1 in 5 first time births is assisted or requires emergency intervention and there is little or no support or counselling offered afterwards.
This might be you. If not, it is very likely that every one of us has a sister, auntie, cousin or friend who will have gone through a birth trauma silently, because people are only now becoming more aware that it can cause perinatal PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). We are told that we "should" be grateful that we have a healthy baby and to get on with being a new parent. But birth trauma is a watershed event. It haunts us for years and changes lives forever. Life is never the same again and we are changed irrevocably too. It can lead to or be a cause of Post Natal Depression. If left unresolved it can affect our health and our relationships, let alone how trauma affects our babies as they grow and develop.
