***Sorry if this is triggering***
I am always surprised and disheartened by the sheer number of women who say they have been sexually abused on TB and other forums. I think it's far more widespread than anyone wants to admit, and the reason it may not seem that way statistically is because it often goes unreported. I know it has in my case.
Here's a heavy question: Do any of the sexual abuse survivors here find your past experiences and traumas affecting the way you raise your LO? I know some mothers can't breastfeed because of it, but I'm wondering if your approach to other aspects of parenting is shaped by past trauma and abuse.
