Absent mindedness became my new normal after my traumatic C-section!

Mar 12, 2024
Mother and son 32 years after birth trauma form a failed anaesthetic during caesarean  birth.
TRIGGER WARNING - distressing C-section
In 1988, my world fell apart when my anesthetic failed during my cesarean birth.
 
😲I felt everything in one area on my right side that hadn't been numbed. The reason was that the spinal anesthetic drug had not filtered to that one section of my abdomen, so the area was fully alive and registered the sensation of the scalpel, the stretching to fit the baby, and of course the stitching.
 
 🙏How did I get through the horror? Well, when it became clear there was no relief forthcoming I closed my eyes and prayed, going into a deep meditation ...two images came to mind to remind me that pain alone doesn't kill and I knew then that I could get through the 30-40 minutes of raw pain.
🤦‍♀️My life was chaotic with PTSD a constant companion for the next few years before the triggers and hyperarousal eased somewhat.
 
👥34 years after the birth I discovered a revolutionary new psychodynamic psychotherapy process, TRTP therapy, and have finally been healed from the PTSD symptoms that had revisited so many times over the years.
 
💻Birth Trauma & PTSD affect many women and debriefing and validation are vital to recovery.
