Why reducing OASI matters
Here are 3 women who have anonymously spoken out about their experience of suffering from the effects of an OASI.
Thank you to all of those who have allowed us to share their story in order to raise awareness among clinicians.
If you are experiencing any of these issues as a result of childbirth, talk to your midwife, doctor, health visitor or GP about the support available in your area.
