This book also describes trauma, PTSD, and its effects on childbearing, but the focus is on labor and birth. The goal of reading this book is to enrich your understanding of how PTSD may manifest in labor and to imagine ways to help a client prepare.
There are two main objectives for this reading:
- To think through a few birth plans that are tailored to the needs of hypothetical clients
- To develop appropriate strategies to help a client have her needs met when she is in labor
