Summary

Postpartum depression has become a more recognized mental illness over the past decade as a result of education and increased awareness. Traumatic childbirth, however, is still often overlooked, resulting in a scarcity of information for health professionals. This is in spite of up to 34% of new mothers reporting experiencing a traumatic childbirth and prevalence rates rising for high risk mothers, such as those who experience stillbirth or who had very low birth weight infants. This groundbreaking book brings together an academic, a clinician and a birth trauma activist. Each chapter discusses current research, women#xE2;#xAC;"s stories, the common themes in the stories and the implications of these for practice, clinical case studies and a clinician#xE2;#xAC;"s insights and recommendations for care. Topics covered include: mothers#xE2;#xAC;" perspectives, fathers#xE2;#xAC;" perspectives, the impact on breastfeeding, the impact on subsequent births, PTSD after childbirth and EMDR treatment for PTSD. This book is a valuable resource for health professionals who come into contact with new mothers, providing the most current and accurate information on traumatic childbirth. It also presents mothers#xE2;#xAC;" experiences in a manner that is accessible to women, their partners, and families.
