Dealing with PTSD

Today I watched a clip from BBC that someone posted on facebook this morning.  It included a number of mothers who suffered from post traumatic stress upon giving birth to their baby.  I felt sad and helpless, but I wasn’t surprised how many woman are effected by this awful disease.  There was one statement that really stuck in my head…”there is no right birth and there is no perfect journey”.  Every mother I know has had a different journey than…
