View Full Version : Feel like I'm getting there
Just wanted to say a big thanks to all the hubbers who offered support, I've been getting help about my birth trauma and I'm starting to really feel like i'm getting some where.
I was really encouraged, particularly after i had a horrible experience with a crap psychologist, to try again. And it's totally worth it.
Most interesting thing for me has been finding out that it wasn't so much what happened to me, even though that was just awful, but more how I felt about what happened.
Just wanted to share and say thanks :)
That's great :hugs::flowerz: I wish you all the best on your healing journey
Thats excellent news! I found a great Physcologist and she was great! (i say WAS because I've since moved and cant see her anymore.. if i could i would though! She was THAT good)
Its true hey, the most helpful thing I was told/got confirmed was that this whole birth trauma thing IS real.. it DOES happen to alot of women out there and we ARENT imagining it or as some friends have said to me "oh, you just didnt handle it well" :( :thumbsdown:
I had a 24 hour labor, and for the longest time i thought it was the "24 hour" part that left me damaged emotionally.. i have however found out that lots of ppl have 24 hour labors.. its what happens DURING those 24 hours and how well (or not, in my case) you are supported. My husband was fantastic.. midwife.. HOPELESS, crass, uncaring, unemotional, rude, abrupt and shouldnt be practicing as a midwife. My anger at my birth now is at our medical system and all the "medical" stuff that interfears with women having normal, natural, healthy, EMPOWERING births.. the way they are (so I'm told) meant to be :)
Here's to hoping we all get to experience birth the way its meant to be ... maybe one day:flowerz:
happy2be3 I totally agree with what you have said about the long labour and about getting some recognition about what you have been through and are still experiencing....I feel similarly.
The healing process is getting there to a point. Still can't even contemplate another one though...
