Betsy's induced labor was long, painful, and extremely traumatic. At many point during her labor, she asked the doctors to give her a c-section, but they refused. After 12 hours in excruciating pain, the doctors finally decided that Betsy needed to have a c-section.
Betsy's birth story may have happened 38 years ago, but it is still relevant today. Her doctors ignored her requests, the trauma from the birth left her feeling conflicted, and she suffered in silence from postpartum depression. Unfortunately, many of the same things still happen today.
Listen as Betsy shares her birth story: the trauma, the beauty that came out of it, and advice for women today.
