I had a traumatic birth experience. To the point that even though I wanted three kids and somewhat still want more than 1 but I can’t bear to think of going back through this experience again. I’m at a point where I’m too scared to have sex because I feel like what if I get pregnant. I’ve PTSD I’m pretty sure. How did you guys go for the second kid? I need some supportive messages

Hi Simone :) I feel similar to you. My first birth was traumatic and I had a pretty serious issue happen, but I recently had my second baby, and all I can say is the birth was very very different. Maybe if it was a provider issue, go a different route like from midwife to doctor or such, and if it was a medical issue, the second pregnancy and birth will be different and easier in lots of ways cause you already did it.
