Laurie Markoff, PhD, Director of Trauma Integration Services and the Institute for Health and Recovery, makes distinctions about defining trauma, internal conflicts facing women who are pregnant and have trauma histories, and the role that substance use may play. She discusses how pregnancy, labor, and delivery may lead to post-trauma reactions and then talks about strategies to support women.
