I also was surprised at the outcomes of
the study. One of the great benefits of being a community midwife is the
opportunity for women to debrief over a period of time. Usually from day
2-28, a little at a time. Even with a normal seemingly non-traumatic
birth, women need to talk it
I am sure that debriefing helps even if it does not cure. I
remember one particular woman at my previous place of work who
rang me many times and needed to talk about her EM CS (possible
not necessary) and I felt sad for her when I left there as we
had not finished debriefing. I think it helped a
Interestingly last year our South Australian Gov held
an inquiry into post natal depression and direct links to birth- cs
specifically. I sat there and listened to a private OB who said "none of
my patients are unhappy with their cs".
would he know? when does he ask?
I'm sorry to hear of your personal experience, Judy, it's so common and so
ignored. I'm sure that the work you've done has been both informed, and
blessed by this sadness in your own life. Sometimes great things come from

Hi,Just wondering if anyone can help. I have a friend with hyperthyroidism (diagnosed during the pregnancy). She is using alternative treatments as well as taking some medication, but her levels are still elevated. The problem is that the doctors now want to induce her (she is 39+ weeks now).

Dear Barb, what a truly shocking experience. I am so sorry. I completely
agree with you though. Some women in Accessing Artemis have had great

lower your mental resistance. I have found if I lower my mental
resistance such as having a lovely massage or by doing heavy physical
work such as climbing Nourlangie Rock in the NT then I cannot have
