So I saw this article on Scary Mommy and was really perturbed by it. I thought to myself do people really grieve about a birth plan not going as planned??? I guess as a mother who has suffered a loss of a child I could not see grieving over such a trivial thing because in the end she had a healthy baby which in my opinion is the most important thing.
Pregnancy with all its uncertainties requires an open mind to everything and anything that could go wrong. There are many women who have issues like high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, growth restrictions and many more that would necessitate extreme measures to ensure a healthy mother and child. I told my OB that I would do anything possible to make sure that I had a healthy pregnancy and I got my TAC for that very reason.
I guess to me everyone has their own feelings but some of those feelings should not be expressed given the possible audience experiences.
What are your thoughts???
