In brief: PTSD Postpartum

Yes! if severe pain long lasting, death of baby, already precarious health problem of mother pre-pregnancy together can lead to longer lasting consequences.

This is a not infrequent cause of PTSD

In brief: That depends on the

Situation and how traumatic you perceived it to be.
There doesn't always need to be a diagnostic label for suffering. Grief can be very painful.
