Healing from Traumatic Birth

What Can Women Do to Prevent a Traumatic Birth?

You cannot control everything about your birth, but there are a few things you can do to better prepare yourself:

  • Choose a care provider and birth location carefully. (See “Unity with Providers of Care,”)
  • Educate yourself and know all of your options as well as your rights. (See “Free to Choose”)
  • Hire a doula. Having a support person with you who is familiar with birth can be very helpful and can increase your chance of having a positive birth experience. (Refer to “Benefits of Having a Doula,”)
