I think the number 1 thing I struggle with is wishing I hadn't capitulated to the induction. My dd almost died. I think if I had been with anyone other than my mw there's a good chance they would have taken my uterus while I was unconscious. The whole experience was traumatic for both my DH and me. And I can't shake the belief that it would have all been avoided if I had just said NO. And it's not like I didn't know better and trusted someone blah blah blah. I knew. And yet I let them scare me into it. It just makes me so filled with regret to think about it.

My daughter is perfect, but her birth was not. If you or someone you love is struggling to cope with a traumatic childbirth experience, please visit
