Accreta spectrum disorder tied to increased risk of PTSD

by Aug 5, 2019Cesarean section, Maternal Outcomes, Traumatic birth, VBAC0 comments

We often think of the physical risks and benefits when talking about VBAC versus repeat cesarean section, but what about the toll on mental health?

The stress of having a complication like placenta accreta is often not addressed and parents are left on their own trying to figure out how to cope with this serious diagnosis.

So I was thrilled to come across a study finally addressing this issue and to include it in our monthly Grand Rounds for VBAC Facts Professional Members.

Join me for this Grand Rounds excerpt where we review Tol 2019, a study looking at the connection between abnormally invasive placenta and post traumatic stress disorder.

If you want to quickly get up to date on the VBAC evidence and easily stay current with the latest research, so you can increase VBAC access in your community, then join the VBAC Facts Membership for Professionals.

There is a bit of myth and mystery surrounding what the American College of OB/GYNs (ACOG) says about VBAC, so let’s get to the facts, straight from the mouth of ACOG via their latest VBAC guidelines.
