I am so sick of reading this comment. The implication that because I needed a c section I didn't trust my body. I am really happy for those that got their ideal birth. But for some of us, that doesn't happen. So the implication that we failed our bodies, didn't "listen" to our bodies, or we failed somehow is hurtful and unnecessary.
FWIW, I chose to NOT opt for them turning Emma. The process was scary, and with the odds of ending up with an emergency c section anyway...I'd rather it have been controlled.
My body failed me when Marshall died. My body failed me when Jonah was formed with anencephaly. That is my body failing.
I am so blessed to live in a day and age where instead of continuing to labor (after 4 days!!!), my baby and I were cared for, and I was able to hold her. Four years later, I was able to hold her sister.
thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!
