Hello!

3 Answers

A few people around me are going into labour and it has brought up memories of my own. I have a lot of anxiety surrounding the birth of my twins, it was a hard labour and i was very uncomfortable during the process as my birth plan wasn’t followed by the people around me. I have massive amounts of guilt over this and feel as though i need to work through it somehow. Any suggestions would be appreciated

  • I bet you are an amazing Mum. I bet you carry all of this with you because it was so scary and you were wanting the best for your babies – all at a time when things got out of your control. That’s not your fault. You love them and they will grow up feeling that love. The guilt is something that you are carrying needlessly and isn’t good for you. I’m guessing that you may also be experiencing grief over not having the births that you had planned. That’s hard.
    It sounds like you need to talk with a counsellor and have your anxiety. concerns, pain and grief heard and acknowledged. Please seek out some support. If you don’t know where to start – see your GP – they should be able to point you in the direction of a counsellor or psychologist.
    You could always get in touch with PANDA too :) https://www.panda.org.au/info-support/after-birth/child-birth-trauma


  • I think talking to a counsellor or pyschologist is your best bet. Although I have similar issues, and for me at least, it got better over time.


  • Talk to some one you trust is the first step. Don’t be afraid to seek support and help as needed!
