Wow. I had a C, but I couldn't ever imagine this. She is amazing and her child is very lucky to have a mom like her.

Greaseball...

The article said she had had a previous negative outcome (baby died, if I remember correctly?). I would guess she recognized that the same thing seemed to be happening again and took matters into her own hands...literally. But I AM just guessing.

An amazing story...Joyce in the mts.
