    I've never heard of this either, though I had a traumatic birth and still sometimes feel like I need to talk to someone about it.

    Whatever it is, I hope it helps :flower:

    I didn't have a debrief but I did have a traumatic birth and seen a consultant who went over a few things (but not in any detail) and talked about my options for future births.

    I hope all goes well :hugs: xx

    Hi there,

    My labour/birth was classed as traumatic aswell, which has effected me. But I haven't been asked or referred to see a consultant like you have been.

    I hope the appointment goes well and let us know how it went. As for myself, it would be nice to know what was discussed and if it was beneficial. As again, having the trauma myself I would be interested to know and what help you had.

    xx

    It sounds like it will be a good thing just to go through it all and express your feelings. Sorry you had a traumatic birth experience and hope you feel better after your debrief.
