Becoming a Mother and a Badass Through a Traumatic Birth

In this episode, Bethany Purificato joins us to talk about her birth and postpartum story that did not go as planned. She is strong and vulnerable as she walks Kaitlin through her traumatic experience in the hospital and the first weeks at home. Although this birth story gets quite explicit, we wanted Bethany to tell us with as much detail as she wanted about her birth experience because it is her truth. On The Be Her Village Podcast we want to share birth stories of every kind because no matter what kind of story a birthing parent has, there is going  to be someone listening that feels inspired, heard, validated, or educated.

We are grateful for Bethany's story and that not only does she share the hard parts, but she also is able to share what she's gained from her birth story, as well as share with us what she's doing to help heal from her experience.

If you or someone you know has experienced a traumatic birth, there are a number of maternal mental health providers listed on our registry.
