Birth story sorry its quite graphic

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi I am new to this site and wondered if there was any other moms who have gone through a bad birth, this is my story

I had my little girl in 2008 I was in labour for around 56 hours and had to have a forceps delivery, I also had to have an episiotomy and I had a 2nd degree tear aswell, I could not see what was going on but my mom did and was horrified by what she saw, after my little girl was born my insides followed, and had a lot of stitches, ever since then I find it very painful to have sex even now nearly 5 years after, it was not the way I wanted to meet my daughter in any way and I get very jealous and upset when my friends have had their babies and all had lovely births greensad.gif I have had nightmares of my birth ever since

I'm sorry this happened to you. Is there anyone you can process your feelings with? *hugs* I hope someone here will chime in soon to offer advice.

:(  I am so sorry. It takes a long, long time to begin to heal your body, much less your heart. Have you approached a medical professional with your physical concerns?
