I am so glad to hear that everything went so well. You followed your heart and listened to what you and your little girl needed.....with everything. You did what you needed to do for you, regardless of the outcome, and for that I commend you.
Welcome earthside little Zoe!!! You have a wonderful, strong mama.
Huge Congrats and Welcome Zoe.
And huge congrats for sticking to your guns and doing things YOUR way - and showing those docs that you were perfectly able to make qualified, safe and reasonable decisions all the way.
I am sorry for the vaginal UC you didnt get - I have been there and know that even though I was in charge of my birth and made all the calls, I still grieve the UC I "lost".
Some things are just out of our hands arent they..
Huge congrats again - enjoy your lovely daughter and pad yourself on the shoulder for the amazing courage and selfconfidense you have kept through all this time despite the medical community doing their best at getting in control.
Lots of good wishes and thoughts.
