    @Em9 I had a traumatic first birth, and was diagnosed with PTSD when DS was 7m. I saw a fantastic psychiatrist for the following 18m, and with his support, was able to overcome my illness. When DS was 17m, I took what felt like a huge leap of faith, and fell pregnant again. I vetted my obstetrician carefully, and also had a private midwife team looking after me. It wasn't easy, and taught me how strong I am, and just how motivated I was to have another baby. In June, my beautiful daughter was born in water, intervention free, after a wonderful 90 minute labour. At the moment it will probably seem like an impossible task, but with the right support, you can do anything. If you google 'Tea, Dust and Stitches', you'll find my blog, where I've written more about my experience.

    Thankyou so much. I will have a google tonight. I'm going to talk to my g.p and find out where to go from there. I'm so glad you were able to overcome what happened and hope that I am able to do the same. X
