    Aww Ladies – I am so sorry to hear how many of you have been effected by a traumatic birth experience. 🙁

    There is no ‘definition’ as such as to what constitutes a ‘traumatic’ birth – it varies from woman to woman as to what she constitutes as being a ‘traumatic birth’ (one woman’s dream birth is anothers nightmare and vice versa)

    Woman who suffer from the effects of a traumatic birth include feelings of:

    *anxiety after the birth or in recalling the birth
    *flashbacks to the birth
    *feelings of disempowerment on recalling the birth
    *feeling they were mistreated in birth
    *feeling as if she was not listened to
    *feelings of failure
    *fear to have another child
    *reactive depression
    *obsessiveness of the experience

    Hope this helps.

    sorry Bookwitch 😥

    This is a support forum for women in Ireland who have suffered from traumatic births. It was set up by Dr. Kate Byrne – one of the facilitators for the AIMS workshops

    Might help

    My 1st birth was OK as far as births go – the second was bad and the 3rd was hell on earth, I was so worked up all throughout my 3rd pregnancy that by the time it came to delivery (10 days in hosp due to breach baby and inducement) I was in a bad way – panicking all the time. I’ve pretty much felt all of the above as in AIMS message, BUT… its the 8 stone I gained over the 3 pregnancys (depression and hormones) that has actually put me off having any more – lets just say that descision is final, no turning back now! Ive lost 5 stones (nearly 6) now, but the fear of ever putting on any more weight is the clincher. Is that selfish? I love my girls and have a great life with them, plus I think with any more youre spreading your love and attention a little thinner.

    God Ej, you sound like you had a very traumatic birth/s.

    I suffer with pnd and no-one knows how it changes you as a person, I was always on the go before ds was born and would pack a bag and wizz off on a plane at the drop of a hat…..now a trip to a coffee morning in Scotch Hall is a huge milestone for me.

    I think your great 3 kids isnt easy, I have one and Its such a task at time. Fair play to you losing the weight and keep it up

    I think we will order a bus just for Mumstowners 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

    You do a great job as a mum taylor no matter what view or feelings you have about it, if you weren’t A wouldn’t be such a great little fella

    I burst into tears if anyone says anything negative about the way i’m bringing up my family, but i’m good at hiding my depression, i don’t talk to anyone, everyone thinks i just do it naturally
