Birth trauma shouldn't be a secret, but it is

Do you read Postsecret? Every Sunday a new set of secrets, mailed in anonymously on postcards, goes up. This week one of the secrets had to do with an unnecessary c-section (scroll down about halfway to see it). I noticed this woman mentioned that her son is healthy...a lot of women hear "as long as you have a healthy baby, whatever happened to you doesn't matter". But I think deep down they suspect that they DO matter. And I loved, loved, loved that on this website that millions of people read, they posted a response to that secret directing this woman to ICAN. I hope it serves to educate more women about unnecessary c-sections long before they have to deal with the prospect personally.
