I found an amazing blog with powerful images of artistic interpretations of cesarean birth trauma.


It’s just like the one where the lady has the black shadow slowly consuming her.

I’ve also been chatting to other mums traumatised tonight. It sounds bizarre, but they just ‘know’. It’s so comforting. I have not told them my birth story. I have not read their birth stories.

I’m so terrified. I don’t want to go back ‘there’. I’m two months out from Missy’s birthday and things are starting to go to the shit.

Warning: this blog is not censored and these pictures may encourage triggers.

Edited 18/5/13: I was on Pinterest and found this interview with the artist who has the cesarean art blog. She wishes to remain anonymous
