What a nincompoop Mommy! There is nothing stopping mothers from getting educated about pregnancy, childbirth, risks of any type of birth, or really anything to do with labor and birthing their children. The information is out there. I hope her comfort is worth the cost of her child's health here, because that is what she paid with to be "done being pregnant".
My Little Man was born after forty-two weeks and three days and for me, it was never a contest of which I'd rather have. I endured the discomfort and anxiety for the birth of my baby because I KNEW that he'd come when HE was ready and that it would be better for his health to just wait for when that happened.
I have NO sympathy for impatient and selfish mom in this situation, but I feel horrible for the innocent little baby that wasn't ready to be taken from the womb yet and is now suffering.
And for the record, Lucius was eight pounds two ounces and I would not consider him to have been a "big" baby. I consider eight to nine pounds to be average. Ten is big, but not impossible to have a natural birth with. The head circumference and position of the baby are what matters for "difficulty of birth" (not taking medical emergencies and uncommon events into account). Fat squishes.
