Birth stories

Below is a collection of stories from women who have had a negative or traumatic birth experience.  We hope that by reading these stories you will see that you are not alone.  One of these stories may be similar to your own, or perhaps none of them are - your story is your own, and it is valid. 



Trigger warning

Some of these stories are detailed and may be triggering for you.  We recommend reading them only when you feel it won't negatively impact your well-being.  There are content notes at the start of each story.
