INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO EXPERIENCE TRAUMA WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is trauma?

Trauma is physical injury that occurs suddenly. Just as trauma can happen outside of pregnancy, it also can happen during pregnancy. About 70 percent of pregnancy trauma results from motor vehicle accidents. Another common cause is falling, which often happens because a woman’s balance gets thrown off as the body’s center of gravity shifts during late pregnancy, and because muscles of the lower back are strained while the front abdominal muscles are stretched, thereby weakening your posture. Sadly, domestic violence also constitutes another major cause of pregnancy trauma.
