Dr Jane Morris, Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist and Medical Psychotherapist
I was moved to tears by these powerful stories of birth trauma, linked by a digest of historical context and research evidence. Expert compassionate care can prevent damaging psychosocial consequences for women and families, whilst professionals themselves need to be shown the same kindness. This book is often heart-breaking but ultimately hopeful.

A well-informed, comprehensive book based on research evidence and people's experiences of postnatal PTSD. Essential reading for maternity care professionals.
