Any general suggestions for how to help a friend deal with birth trauma?
Remind her that she did the best she could at the time, with the information that she had available, with the supports she had. Also tell her that she is not alone - lots of people have also had traumatic births - and that there is NOTHING that determines whether a birth is traumatic except her personal feelings about the experience.
