Oh, momma *hugs*. What an absolutely awful thing to say to a newly expectant mother! 

I was told a few times with DS I should just "have a natural birth in the hospital if I don't want an epidural". No one could really grasp the fact it wasn't JUST the epidural that I disliked on that choice, nor did anyone take the time to ask me questions or research facts themselves. Thankfully, no one told me I was a baby killer, but I got a lot of the "WHAT IF SOMETHING HAPPENS TO THE BABY?!"in which I would reply "If something happens, I fully believe it would happen regardless of where we chose to birth."
