Yes! Babies get traumatized some as early as during delivery.
This is called birth trauma/injury!!!
Birth injuries are most commonly due to the natural forces of labor and delivery.
It can also be caused by forceps, C-sections, forcing the baby out the birth canal, etc.
Babies are preverbal and toddlers’ language development is limited, they can’t verbalize their fears. They can’t describe a nightmare or flashback. But the behaviors of infants and toddlers who have experienced significant trauma can offer clues that indicate the development of PTSD.
