Understanding Birth Trauma and Its Effects on Women






Birth trauma in mothers is a term used to describe postpartum post-traumatic stress disorder (P-PTSD). According to Postpartum Support International, P-PTSD affects around nine percent of women.
The root cause for this illness is trauma during birth. It is important to note that perceived trauma is real trauma. What this means is that the birthing experience could have a deep and negative impact on the mother if she perceives something traumatic has occurred, regardless of someone else’s perception of that trauma’s realness.
Some examples of situations that can trigger postpartum PTSD include but are not limited to:

Medical complications occurring to the baby such as newborn resuscitation, newborn being rushed to NICU, prolapsed cord, and of course stillbirth or infant loss.
Medical complications occurring to the mother such as emergency C-section, severe hemorrhage, unexpected hysterectomy, loss of consciousness, severe perineal tears, etc.
Use of vacuum extractor or forceps.
Premature birth.
History of sexual abuse or rape.
Feelings of powerlessness or voicelessness in the decision-making process during labor.
Lack of support, empathy or communication from the caregivers or medical staff attending the labor.
Feelings of having been coerced, bullied, scared, or shamed into accepting certain procedures.
Loss of control or dignity.
A previous negative birthing experience.
History of psychological or mental health problems.
A birth that resulted differently than what was hoped for (i.e. a planned home birth that ended in a hospital transfer; an unmedicated birth that required an epidural; a hospital birth that didn?t happen because it speedily culminated in delivery in the car on the side of a highway; etc.)
Reading the list above we may be tempted to think that some of the reasons presented ? mainly, the medical emergencies ? seem more ?legitimate? or ?make more sense? for resulting in postpartum PTSD. This, however, represents a problematic narrative in how we view, judge, score, and value women?s birthing experiences.
It is imperative to remember that each woman?s individual experience is valuable, unique, and can have a long-lasting impact on her life.
Furthermore, it?s necessary to explore our own beliefs and biases on the matter, since lack of support is likely to be the primary reason why mothers who suffer from this illness hesitate to ask for help. By recognizing P-PTSD as a legitimate illness, we can be better equipped to identify its signs and be of help.
What Makes PTSD, PTSD"
For a diagnosis of PTSD to be established, the occurrence of an event considered beyond the range of usual human experience is required. Symptoms involve a triad of responses, including:

Active avoidance of reminders of the event
Hyperarousal manifested by general edigness or irritability
Intrusive experiences consisting of nightmares or images that occur as if the person were to relive the triggering event in real time, or persistently reexp...
