From what I can see, the shame never fully goes away. I know the most fabulous, confident successful bmoms in their 60's that admit they still feel shame. You just have to keep fighting it! And, even then you give yourself a pat on the back for being brave and shameless one day, and then you kick yourself for missing out on an opportunity to tell your story because you didn't feel you had the guts the next.
My therapist once asked me if I realized that I did the best I could at that time. I answered NO. Maybe when we can answer "yes, with what I knew and the resources I had, I did the best I knew how." Maybe then the guilt will go away.
