You have the right to complain about your treatment at the hands of healthcare providers and/or in healthcare facilities. As difficult as it is to remember and revisit past trauma, our collective silence is what allows that trauma to happen again to someone else.
For information and resources on childbirth-related trauma, please click here. Know that you are not alone. It is not unusual for women to report feeling traumatized by events in childbirth, and some report symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. We encourage anyone who has been traumatized in birth to explore these resources for healing, and to consider finding a therapist to facilitate that journey.
