Hearing the birth stories of other women (good and bad), has really made me feel like I am not alone, and that I can one day have a beautiful uncomplicated delivery. I myself, had a shoulder dystocia birth 18 months ago. My daughter has Erb’s Palsy as a result. We go to countless physio appointments and my daughter also has had surgery. Because the birth was so traumatic, I now suffer from PTSD. I see therapists, and take medication to help with the anxiety, flashbacks, and sleeping. I felt very alone, for a very long time. Slowly day by day, it gets a little better and a little easier to accept what has happened. Thank you for being part of my recovery.
