Popping in from the April DDC....

Natalie, I can certainly understand your feelings in relation to the amniotic band taking your baby's life. My daughter Aislyn was born missing part of her left arm due to the same thing. The band wrapped around her arm a couple of inches below the elbow, amputating it while she was still inside me. Even though she was alive, I kept feeling guilty and wondering what I could have done to prevent this from happening. I know in reality there's nothing that could have prevented it. As you said, it was just a freak accident that happens very rarely. But still, it's something that bothers me to this day.

I just wanted to let you know that you aren't alone out there who has great concern about freak accident that is the amniotic band. *hugs*
