star*mora,
I thank you for sharing your story, I know that it must be very difficult for you to write. It validates those of us who have also had similar experiences and who have learned that we may be wonderful, loving, conscientious, Earth mothers who just were not blessed with the ability to enjoy normal, natural, trauma-free pregnancies and/or births despite doing all of the "right" things. I really do wish that I knew where the correct place was to have a real voice for mamas like us, without worrying about upsetting others-I've yet to find it.

Thank you as well for educating me more clearly about signs of uterine rupture. These little bits of information get tucked away in my mind and seem to come to me in the moments when I need them the most. Thank you for arming me with knowledge that may someday save my life or the life of a friend.

I am so very glad to hear that your son is okay. I know that doesn't erase the scars of the experience, but I of course know that as a mother it is the utmost hoped-for outcome out of any pregnancy/birth.

Please do be kind to yourself and your family as you all recover from this trauma, and if you need to talk it through more, don'y hesitate to post/pm.
I wish you well.

i am grateful to be moving to mothering only and leaving birthing behind, and that my body is functioning naturally as a mother in a way that it never could in birth. this has been a long road to gratitude and practicing acceptance.
thank you for sharing mama
i am inspired by your perspective
