A Discussion About Birth Rape and Its Results

We all know that birth trauma can occur in infants, but what about women? For years women have been suffering in silence from birth trauma that results from their treatment during labor and delivery of their child. The feelings some women have about their negative experiences are
overwhelming, so much so that some women suffer from PTSD afterwards. Some women refer to their treatment as birth rape, especially if they had instruments placed inside them without their consent.

  1. Wow. This is absolutely insane. If you don't want to be poked, prodded, stuck or examined when you're having a baby, don't go to the hospital. Have it at home by yourself and don't subject anyone who might be trying to help you, to crazy accusations like this. Isn't the real trauma the forceful violation of the 8 lb baby squeezing through the narrow passage of your birth canal and pushing it's way through your vagina? You're not mad at the baby, are you?
