I didn't have as many complications as you are having, but I did have a tramautic first birthing with my oldest daughter. With my second I did hypnobabies and I found a lot of healing in it and preparation leading up to her birth. Their births were night and day difference. I think it's totally normal to have fears relating to your first birth going into the second (and now for me, that first birth is my default and I'm finding myself having to work through it again now).
It helps me to remind myself that even though things didn't go very well with my first birth, they were an extremely rare set of circumstances and the odds of them occurring again are very very very small.
