In a culture that provides a false narrative of what birth should look like and a system that isn’t designed to support all birthing people, birth experiences often don't match parents’ expectations. Furthermore, the physical and emotional vulnerabilities of birth in conjunction with our racist healthcare system contribute to high levels of birthing associated trauma. This can extend to birth workers too.
