Intervention and psychological outcomes in childbirth: an excerpt from The Face of Birth
Women are not told that interventions in childbirth can affect them psychologically and can affect their relationship with their children.
We may not lose babies lives but we lose relationships and mental health.
Birth is more than just live baby and live mother.
3-5/100 Women experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Only species that mistreats women in childbirth and expects women to ignore their trauma and get busy parenting.
The feeling of helplessness that happens after traumatic birth can carry forward into other area of their lives.
The experience stays with you for a lifetime.
