15: How Birth Trauma Changed My Life
Show Notes

"Make Your Mess Your Message."

Birth trauma is an experience no woman expects. It leads to overwhelming grief at a time when mothers are experiencing overwhelming joy. 

Six months later, I want to share more about my birth trauma. How I felt, what I learned, and how I will be forever changed as a Pediatrician, mom, and person. 

Our son was born on December 16th after a healthy pregnancy. We both spent time in the ICU with complications from birth.

If you haven't already, please head over to my Instagram @pedsdoctalk and read my birth story (Black and White Images) on my feed. 

I am making MY MESS MY MESSAGE by sharing with you what I wish people would know about birth trauma survivors. I hope to use my recovery through a traumatic experience to help you heal if you are also suffering from any kind of trauma. 

My hope is that if you have experienced trauma, this episode will resonate with you. If you know someone who is going through trauma, this may give you insight as well. And if you ever find yourself grieving in the future, I hope my words will always live with you. 

As always, head over to @pedsdoctalk on Instagram to follow me for more!
