Women’s experience of traumatic childbirth: An interpretative phenomenological analysis

It has long been recognised that women may experience trauma as part of the birth process. Up to half of women worldwide report their birth as traumatic, therefore further investigation is a priority. Previous research has focused on women diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Postnatal Depression (PND) with a lack of focus giving women without a diagnosis a voice as to why they experienced trauma during childbirth. My doctoral research study was written to explore this issue further and provides an explorative and in-depth understanding of women who experience trauma as part of the birth process who do not have a diagnosis of PTSD or PND.
