    Hi I have experienced 5 pregnancy losses 3 of which were in the 2nd trimester, 2 in the first – four of them were life threatening to me alongside being traumatic in losing babies that we wanted so much. I used a PTSD workbook which helped alongside therapy.

    I am confused, reviewing the literature. Does DSM-V categorise PTSD after childbirth as disorder within itself or implies it may exist as the subjective experience of suffers is such that they meet Criterion A? As a professional body was PTSD-after childbirth recognised as a formal disorder prior to these guidelines? Various articles suggest to me that it was felt to but had not been formalised by the AAP!? Can you give me some guidance? Many thanks
