Childbirth after Previous Birth Trauma

Here is some information about a new Study on PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder):

Subsequent Childbirth after Previous Birth Trauma:
In order to help clinicians provide better care to mothers who are having a subsequent childbirth after suffering through a previous traumatic birth, Cheryl Beck (Professor at the University of Connecticut) and Sue Watson (chairperson of TABS) are now conducting a research study on this topic.

Women who have had another child after having experienced birth trauma are invited to participate in this research study. Just like Professor Beck's previous studies on birth trauma and PTSD after childbirth, this study will be conducted over the Internet. Mothers will be asked to describe their experiences during pregnancy, and labor and delivery after having suffered a previous traumatic childbirth.

If you are interested in participating in this research or wish to find out more about this study, please contact Professor Cheryl Beck directly at the University of Connecticut. Her email address is
