Perinatal Posttraumatic Stress Disorder

PTSD symptoms include:

  • troubling memories

  • re-experiencing a traumatic event (such as a traumatic birth)

  • recurrent dreams or nightmares

  • avoidance of triggers

  • isolation from support


Women are often extremely distressed by these events and become fearful of these spontaneous memories (PSI, 2016).
