If you are holding on to negative feelings associated with your birth, you may have experienced birth trauma 😔
Maybe something didn’t go the right way, you weren’t treated with respect, you had to be whisked to the OR quickly, or you were worried that you or your baby might die.
Whatever it was, only YOU get to decide.
I receive tons and tons of messages in my inbox of women telling me about their traumatic birth stories – asking if there was something wrong or something that could have been prevented 😞
It really makes me sad that traumatic birth is a thing, and that these types of births leave moms feeling lost after delivery.
Traumatic birth can affect how you go into motherhood, and arguably affect you for the rest of your life.
❤ If you’ve experienced a traumatic birth and are feeling hopeless after your experience, I encourage you to talk to your provider, seek out a therapist, and find support in your area.
This is not something to be taken lightly, because it REALLY can have an effect on your life.
You are free to share your story if you’ve experienced a traumatic birth in the comments. I just also warn other pregnant mamas that reading some of the comments may be difficult for you, and anxiety invoking, so please read with caution ❤
