This is just a hypothetical question, that I thought was interesting to contemplate:
If you KNEW that your baby would be born with an injury, and you KNEW there was nothing you could do to prevent it (you've been given a glimse into the future both ways: UC and hospital birth) but you KNEW that you'd get blamed for it, would you still choose to UC? or would you consider going to a hospital to avoid blame?
Note: I edited out the explanation of what made me think of this question, because I felt it was making it unclear that the question is Completely Hypothetical -- Like, 'who would you rather be stuck on a desert island with' -- totally unrealistic & simply an exploration of how we feel about appearances and blame.
I do have an actual, real exploration of where to birth this baby going on and I don't feel comfortable with that process getting confused with this conversation in any way especially when I know there are people who lurk here & share posts other places.
