My story

I've been kinda lurking here for a while since I heard of this group.  It's been six months almost since my son was cut out of me.

Hi Mamas,

I was just diagnosed with PTSD resulting from my son's birth almost 10 months ago. Anyone have any words of wisdom or advice for me as I start on my new path to healing? My midwife has recommended intensive counseling as our starting point and I think I agree.

My birth story...

Hi everyone. I'm so relieved to have found this community that I cried my heart out when I was reading it last night.

I want to share my pregnancy and birth story with you, to explain why I'm so emotional regarding this subject. I've repressed these memories pretty much, but only recently when I started considering having more children, did it all come to the surface. I suffer from depression anyway and on anti depressants, but I also strongly believe I may have PTSD as a result of my birth experience. I get nightmares about it, flashbacks, panic attacks etc. So I hope you all appreciate how hard it is for me to share all this with you.

Cut for length...Collapse )

Yes, that date is correct. A little over two years and I'm finally opening up about my son's birth. I'm really good at procrastinating and repressing. -.- Anyway, under the cut.

the trauma. a bit longCollapse )

So, that's my story. It took me a while to post because I couldn't get over my feeling that it wasn't bad enough to post or that I should just get over myself.

The Business of Being Born

I've heard a lot about this movie, but have been reluctant to watch it because I was worried how I'd react. So the other night after DH and DD went to bed, I watched it. I figured that way if I got overly emotional about it, they weren't around to see it. Anyway. While I did feel some emotions while watching it (sadness at the natural birth scenes and anger when they were talking about the tactics used to push mothers into interventions), I didn't fall apart.

I've asked DH to watch it. While there's no way he can completely understand how I feel, I think the movie will help him see what I've been feeling and why I feel that way.

My son the C-Section

At first I was fine that my son was born by Emergency C-Section. It didn't bother me really until almost 3 months after he was born. Now it is eating away at me day by day.

My name is Danielle, I am a 22 year old birth and postpartum doula, wife, mother, ICAN chapter leader here in Connecticut.... and this is my birth story.

This is gonna be short but I just want everyones advice.. When i had my daughter 16 months ago, I had a c-section... I had an epidural, but the causes for my c-section were..

i had a fever of 102.
my blood pressure dropped

Do you think the C-Section could have been prevented or was it really needed?
