This week we have a special episode on discussing the experience of and then the healing of birth trauma. As we know far too well, women across the globe are routinely victimized by normalized obstetrical violence and left traumatized from the many ways in which they and their babies were harmed in the system. I am joined by Diana, who experienced the unnecessary yet systematic cascade of interventions in her home birth transfer. This resulted in both a surgical birth she knew she didn’t need, soaked in trauma, with a deep fear of ever having a second child. Surprised by an unplanned pregnancy, Diana faced her trauma, took her healing into her own hands, and birthed in power.
If the way you were treated in your birth experience has left you feeling traumatized, this episode is for you. We are here for you, we see you, you are not alone, and you are certainly, not broken.
