It sounds like you have some birth trauma (and who wouldn't from that experience?!?!) and I really commend you for working through some of this stuff before your next pregnancy. Best wishes to you mama!
You're such a sweet mama! Thank you for your kind words. I do think I went through some serious birth trauma, which my family has kind of shrugged off and belittled since they think I should just be happy that she's healthy. I AM very happy that she's healthy and thriving, but my birth experience was everything I didn't want it to be, and that's hard to just "get over." It's been a year, and I rarely think about it, but it's still very very real to me. I still remember everything like it was yesterday.
