Birth Story – a journey from traumatic caesarean to healing

The following powerful story published on the Improving Birth website takes us from that place of hurt and betrayal from an unplanned caesarean birth, through a beautiful journey of learning and healing.

First and foremost, I needed to value myself as a woman and mother. If I had no self-worth, how could I expect that the experience of birth would offer me any more value than I already had for myself? What my second birth taught me is that when one values herself even just a little bit, her confidence prompts others to treat her with respect. I needed to take that sense of self-worth further, and rise up out of victimhood and into empowerment.
