Lets get talking...

May 7, 2019

One of the most vivid memories I have from being near the end of my first pregnancy was hearing a new mum talking about her birth trauma. I say 'hearing her talk about' it, but she didn't really! Let me explain...we were at a friends baby shower, so birth & babies were the hot topic of conversation. I was about 36 weeks pregnant myself, so feeling pretty anxious about what was going to happen. I overheard someone there talking about her very traumatic birth & subsequent hospital stay for herself & new baby. When tried to join in the conversation, I was met with 'I don't want to scare you' & the conversation moved swiftly on. At the time, I thought nothing of it & was glad not to have anything else to worry about, but looking back it makes me feel incredibly naive.

Birth trauma happens & it happens a lot more than most people know about. No one wants to be the one to tell 'horror stories' or make new mum's worried, but are we doing more harm than good?

I was totally unprepared when things went wrong for us. Stupidly, it never occurred to me that things might not go to plan. I want to share my story, not to frighten people, but to educate & empower them.

I've had friends who have recently given birth & its been great to let them know about this site so that they can hear real life stories. Its why I wanted to create this.

If you have a story to tell & would like to send it, please do - birthtalesinfo@gmail.com

It can be anonymous or credited, totally up to you, I hope to hear from you soon x
