This resource will help women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse (CSA) to prepare for pregnancy, birth and parenthood.

The effects of CSA can last a long time and having a baby can be a particularly difficult and lonely time. The resource shares real-life experiences of pregnancy, birth and parenthood and has been created through the collaboration of women who have experienced CSA, midwives and researchers.
