Trauma-Informed Model of Maternity Care

"When we examine routine maternity care from a trauma informed perspective it’s clear how the invasive and restrictive nature of many standard procedures can trigger a person, potentially causing intense fear, hostility, panic, and anxiety. A trauma-informed model would be a perfect foundation on which to build a high-quality maternity care system, and a vital step in addressing the emotional health and well-being of childbearing people around the world."
-Amy Meister-Stetson
