Lets speak out!!!

Quote:
"Being raped" is how Liz Darke describes giving birth to her daughter. "I had no control," she says, "over what people were doing to my body, despite being fully alert and explaining again and again the kind of treatment that I did and didn't want. I felt I might as well have been a piece of meat."



Quote:
Very few cases of PTSD are recorded among women who have had home births. In fact, the disorder tends to occur more with high-tech births, according to Jean Robinson, the honorary research officer at the UK's Association for Improvements in the Maternity Services (AIMS).
