How do you ever really get over your birth trauma? My daughter is 11 weeks old and we had a great birth but I had bad tearing and had to transfer to the hospital and have tons of stitches internally. I am still achy down there to this day. I watched my birth video yesterday my doula brought over and I have to say it brought back alot of feelings. Now Im terrified when I think of having another baby. Do you ever get over it? I realize Im only a few months pp and i have to give it time but will I ever not get anxiety when i think about giving birth again? It almost makes me wonder if I should try homebirth again since I think it was so scary after the birth. I had bad bleeding cause of the tear and could have had bad affects if my midwife hadnt acted fast and made me go to the ER. Have you ever had a bad homebirth experience and had a homebirth again? My actual birth wasnt bad, i mean it was intense and i was very vocal but It wasnt painful, it was just childbirth. . .
