“Honey, birth trauma is real and it’s OK to be upset when someone tells you that you should be happy that you at least had a healthy baby.”

“Really? But I feel so guilty for being upset about how the birth went. I’m even nervous about having another baby.”

“Well, Dianne and Abby said that your emotional experience is important too and for our next baby we are going to hire the best birth team around.”

Listen this week as Dianne and Abby talk about birth trauma. If things didn’t go as planned during your delivery it’s OK to be upset. You are not selfish and not crazy. Trauma can happen during birth. And trauma can have big effects on breastfeeding. The only one who can decide if your birth was traumatic is you.
