The vital importance of telling your Birth Story and feeling heard has long been understood by doulas, natural birth workers and traditional midwives. Fortunately it is now being taken more seriously in the mainstream birthing world, although most hospitals still only recommend sessions for mothers who have experienced a very traumatic birth, advising them to attend a debriefing session with a senior midwife or doctor. Birth Crisis Network is a support network where women can ring trained supporters about a traumatic birth.Women and families can also contact Doulas and Midwives to understand any part of the birth process and often uncover other feelings that they didn’t know where there – like loneliness, abandonment issues, resentments, and even hidden joys.
