I saw this today on Post Secret and nearly cried. If you or anyone you know has had a traumatic birth or residual feelings of disappointment or anything in between I strongly encourage you to reach out to your local ICAN chapter and work through it. I think sometimes that giving birth has the potential to be very liberating and empowering but it's such an emotional event that the possibility of it being something negative is great as well. There's no shame in how anyone births. I know ICAN has really helped many people work through their negative experiences and go on to have VBACS or generally make peace with what they went through.
