My last birth was one of the worst experiences of my life. If you are interested in what happened I finally was able to write my story down a few months ago and you can find it here:

I am pregnant again and I had my 35 weeks appointment today. I find myself becoming more and more nervous as the day approaches. I feel I am doing everything right this time around. I have switched doctors and hired a doula, am giving birth in the hospital with the lowest c-section rate in the state (we don't have birth centers here), and am even planning a water birth. But i am worried how the trauma I experienced last time will effect this birth.
Those that have given birth again, did it go well? Did you feel that you achieved some level of healing? Any words of wisdom?
