I am posting here because I know this is the community that rallies around their mama friends and I know all of you will most likely be as upset about this as I am.
Backstory: I had a homebirth in 2004 that ended, through no one's fault, in my son being born dead. Horrible ending to a story that started out so hopeful...Suffice it to say we did everything right...I even had an OB monitoring my pregnancy and 2 very capable and experienced midwives AND a doula attending my birth. He kicked me all the way out, was 8lbs 12oz, and there was no indication during pregnancy or birth that anything was wrong save some decels during labor that were all within the realm of normal. But he just never took a breath. Autopsy revealed nothing.
Fast forward to today: Today I found, via a feature on the backend of my website that informs me when people post a link back to my site, this excrutiatingly hurtful article where I'm quoted and mocked (along with other homebirth moms) hurtfully for my loss. (link removed, as suggested)
I don't care that she is against homebirth. Doesn't surprise me, since she IS an OB. But I NEVER gave permission for her to use my story or my words!!! Its just such a heartless thing to do, what she did!!! Wording it the way she did!!!
I am still reeling in shock.
