... is suffering mightily from 'never been well since' cesarean delivery.
She had intended a 'natural childbirth' and had taken appropriate classes / training, done exercises, was quite fit, etc.
Below are salient points from a conversation last night;
I intend to open with Ignatia, unless you have a better idea.
"ugly scar, I want to cut it out with a knife" (cesarean scar)
"when just waking, I often feel as if I have not yet given birth, and must get it right"
"dreamed I gave birth in a parking lot, baby came out elbow first, woke thinking I had delivered Callie vaginally, then realized, not."
anger (self, doctor, doula)
obsession with what might have been done differently
delusion (persistent, while waking, of having NOT given birth)
unable to lose fat / weight put in during pregnancy
stoic (suffers in silence for 1yr)
fear of ridicule ("couldn't even consider telling anyone else")
love & warm wishes,
