Yet it’s only recently that we have started talking about birth trauma and offering specific psychological treatments for it.If you experienced a difficult birth, you may notice the following difficulties:
You might be overwhelmed by negative emotions and thoughts.
Maybe you think you’re not good enough because you didn’t have the birth in your plan.
Maybe you think you’re a bad person for not being smiley and happy all of the time.
Maybe you have hateful thoughts towards people who seem to have it all and cope well with their immaculate house, smiley/happy baby.
You might know that this birth is over but be unable to move on with your life.
You might notice yourself thinking ‘I’ve got what I wanted, my baby is here. But i just don’t feel right.’
Yet you keep thinking about that horrible experiences around the birth and you are not enjoying the moment?
