Definition of Birth Traumatomology (BTS). BTS is formed not only in the birthing mom, but secondary and primary trauma can occur in others as well.
Birth Traumatomology Syndrome
- Trauma syndrome experienced by women who are controlled and manipulated through the fear of death—their own or the baby’s—during pregnancy, labor and childbirth, rendering their experience of pregnancy and birth to be out of the scope of ordinary.
- Trauma syndrome experienced by others involved who are rendered helpless and ineffective to stop the fear, manipulation and control of the pregnant, laboring, or birthing woman (i.e. husbands, birth doulas, midwives, others)
