PTSD and birth? Listen up!

Hail to the Wall Street Journal! Yesterday they printed a story about the rising recognition that some mothers are experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) due to childbirth.

The first time I heard this mentioned was when reading Sheila Kitzinger's book, Birth Crisis and it made so much sense.

Read the article. And if you're a mother who has experienced birth trauma I encourage you to get connected to a great organization - Solace for Mothers (www.solaceformothers.org). Help is out there.

Here's the link to the piece:
