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 )
