Psychological Birth Trauma is essentially post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after childbirth. PTSD can follow any traumatic event – such as being in a car accident, being sexually abused or having a very difficult birth. It can also happen to people who have witnessed a traumatic event, so people who have seen someone else violently killed, for example, often experience PTSD. This is why some partners, and even midwives, experience PTSD after seeing a traumatic birth.
In most cases, what makes birth traumatic is the fear that you or your baby are going to die. Physical birth trauma is as injury, often painful, caused by the birth itself.
