This week, we sat down with Maddy, to talk about her two birth stories. Maddy openly talks about birth trauma after her first baby, a fourth degree tear, making the decision to have another child, having a new healthcare team, and being empowered to have a beautiful, healing birth - all while having type 1.
For support related to birth trauma, please reach out to the Australasian Birth Trauma Association.
In this episode, Maddy discussed a support group for fourth degree tears. This group can be found here.
