So, I'm glad you ladies are so adament that yo9u will have home biirths and never let you babies out of your sight. But frankly, I resent the implication that I just didn't bother to do anything about it.
was a first time mother who didn't know I could buck the system.
I was mentally and physically exhausted from 3 days of home labor. And was being chewed out from the hospital ped. So I was afraid to put up a fuss.
I have grown some balls and intent to make my wishes know in the future. But please don't make statememts like I wonder how hard they really tried, because that's just nasty.
s to you Momma. I was like you with my first. I didn't say boo either, (the only balls I had were the ones that had vacated my uterus on the baby boy I delivered earlier that day) I was just lucky that where we live, rooming in is the norm.
