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

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 tragedy! Love to you, J - Original Message - From: Judy Chapman
