Dear friends -- I am currently writing a book entitled "Birth Trauma in America -- A Hidden Epidemic." I would like to give voice to the stories of birth trauma survivors. Stories can include experiences from mothers, fathers, and children, including those who experienced postpartum depression and/or postpartum PTSD and those who had c-sections, botched inductions, or whose babies spent time in a NICU or were damaged from technological interventions, and more.

If you feel you have experienced birth trauma, and would like to share your story with me and possibly have it published in my book, please email your story to jeanicebarcelo@yahoo.com -- with the heading of the email reading "BIRTH TRAUMA STORY." Photos of your traumatic births would also be very helpful.

Thank you for your support and your willingness to help other families by sharing your story.
