    I just filled out the form requesting mine yesterday. We'll see if they try and charge me...?

    Seeing as i started this thread, thought i might add that i never did request my records from the hospital i gave birth in (I gave birth to DD almost 3 years ago). I have however managed to read my notes direct as i am now a midwife and work at the hospital i gave birth in! (I was a neonatal nurse studying post grad midwifery when i fell pregnant).
    My notes were not nearly as exciting as i thought they would be .
    I am pregnant with my second baby now I have definately recovered from my birth trauma, but hope to have a very different birth this time. Good luck to all those recovering and healing and i hope your notes help you in that process. Mine certainly helped me understand. Its funny how you forget time frames and details too!

    OMG. I have having trouble dealing with the birth of my son. It was sudden and I was lied too through out the process. Knowing the truth might help.

    I'm really sorry for that. A lot of people do feel better knowing exactly what DID happen, it sounds as though you need to debrief. Is there a Birthtalks group near you? They are really helpful with this stuff, and also the Maternity Coalition.

    Default Article with advice on getting your records

    Hi - it's Melissa here from Birthtalk.org In 2008 I posted in this thread about an article we wrote to support women in how to get their notes, and how to use their notes in their healing journey after a traumatic birth. I wanted to share the link to the NEW version of that article, as it no longer exists at the old link. We have updated and revised the article- it is now complete with sections outlining 'who to contact', 'what to ask for', and 'now what do I do?', with advice on dealing with situations where your birth notes are wildly inaccurate. Hope it helps http://birthtraumatruths.wordpress.c...-healing-step/
