As we come to the end of Birth Trauma Awareness Week, we wanted to showcase some of the amazing blogs our members have created to talk about their experiences of birth trauma. Unashamed and unafraid, these women’s blog posts about traumatic birth do so much to bring out into the open stories which are too often hidden away. Honest, frank, sometimes heartbreaking, always inspirational these blogs resonated so strongly with us that we wanted to share them with you. #BreakTheSilence
