Birth Trauma- A Really Serious Situation

Trauma mainly is injury but rather than a physical one, the reference is mainly for the mental and emotional one. When some situation disturbs you or an event leaves you feeling helpless, you may encounter sudden mental and emotional injury. You may start feeling sad, anxious, angry, helpless etc. When you cannot do anything about such feelings and they really affect your life in a negative way, its time to seek help for this condition. You are under an intense trauma.

A trauma can make the foundation weak of one’s beliefs regarding safety, as well as shatter trust. It leaves you feel angry and helpless as you are not able to fight with a particular situation. Trauma is may lead you on the path of depression if you do not seek professional help at proper time. Trauma is a condition so far removed from what one expects that a traumatic event can provoke reactions that are strange as well as crazy, to say the least.

Injuries to infants are very common while birth. This is referred as birth injury. These injuries have serious implications after birth. Birth trauma is usually associated with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that flows childbirth. Although there are many women who give birth to their babies with relative ease but there are also a lot of women all over the world who find childbirth as very stressful and painful experience that they end up having birth trauma. This trauma has a greater effect on child. Women who are suffering from birth trauma manifest different types of symptoms. To help a woman cope with birth trauma, one must learn to recognize the different symptoms of this disorder.

Birth trauma mainly occurs due to compression and contraction forces.  It also affects the mental and emotional balance of the female. One of the most common manifestations of birth trauma is the so-called “persistent re-experiencing” where the patient would continue to relieve her horrible experience. Recurrent and intrusive memories of what happened would often cause nightmares and flashbacks that could cause a lot of discomforts on the part of the sufferer. Usually, when the suffer sees, smells or hears something that is associated with the event, she will start to feel anxious or panicky.

Often times, women who are suffering from birth trauma would have difficulty with their relationship with others. According to studies, because she is afraid of going through that painful and stressful experience again, she may start to withdraw from sex. Since sex is associated with childbirth, a woman who is going through severe birth trauma may develop some avoidance towards sex.

Many women who are suffering from birth trauma would rather not discuss their experience. Every time the topic of childbirth comes up, she will start to feel distressed and would not have anything to do with discussions related to childbirth. However, on the extreme end of the spectrum, some women who are going through birth trauma would be so obsessed about their experience that they would not talk about anything else other than their experience with childbirth.

As the woman becomes more obsessed with her childbirth experience, she would start losing sleep, becomes very irritable and sullen. More often than not, a woman who is experiencing trauma would have difficulty communicating and relating to other people around her.
