The article says they did the c/s because the baby "might die in the womb"!!!

wow, that is so sad...who would consent to that? I mean, I would need hard, solid, 100% second, third, fourth opinion evidence that unless I delivered NOW the baby would die...

I am not trying to judge, but words like baby "might" have died in the womb creep me out... what is "might"?? Everyone's baby "might" die in the womb ya know?

That is really sad

Wow. I wish I knew what they thought "might" cause the baby to die... obviously the baby wasn't really much better off outside the womb. ~sighs~

That poor baby. Literally RIPPED from her LIFE SUPPORT! and because of what? an U/S? that's unbelievable!

I believe that if a baby is meant to die there is nothing you can do to stop it.....sad but it's my opinion!

eta: who knows she wouldn't have lived if birthed naturally?

Wow...how sad!! I heard about her on the news here since we are in Tulsa.

I also wonder what it was they thought would make her not able to survive...

Dr. John Stanley said Diedra faced placenta problems that forced her to remain in bed, which stunted Kaylee's growth. He said a delivery was necessary for both Deidra and Kalea to live.

"We saw some findings on ultrasounds that made us believe that if we didn't deliver the baby fairly soon, the baby would die before it was delivered," Stanley said.

I'm confused why that story was even in the news. They deliver babies that size all the time, some live, some die. There weren't even enough details in that particular article to make it make sense or be interesting. I don't get it

OMG

why'd they give her a c-section : when the baby as that small, they should have never taken the baby at all just becaue " it might have died in utero" : : : :

I thought that I had read somewhere that the mama had pre-e or something that made her placenta all wonky.

Honestly, I think I would take my chances with a possible fetal demise. That poor baby.

That is so sad...
I too would have taken my chances with the baby in the womb... especially with vague statements like "might" and "could" instead of "will". Unless my life was most DEFINITELY at risk if the baby was kept in even ONE MORE DAY, I can't imagine doing that. Then again, I've been called on having an 'abnormal' trust in nature. :-P

If a baby was going to die in the womb, and would probably die if delivered early, why not let it die in the womb? I'm sure that's what it would prefer - to die in a peaceful environment and not in a tent with tubes and wires and things.

I keep trying to imagine the conversation with the OB/specialist in which s/he convinces the parents that their super duper incubator is a better choice for this child than her faulty ignorant womb. Ughh. It is so wrong that people can believe this crap.

While there may be relevant complications that we are not privy to, the bottom line is that the body does what it does for a reason. The mother's womb is still vastly superior to any medical apparatus, even at it's worst! Even in cases of true eclampsia, they typically try to delay birth until mother is in severe danger.

I can't think about this anymore; it gets me too riled up.

I saw them on the Today Show earlier this week. unbelievable and so very very sad! The baby was alive when I saw the mother and doctor interviewed. Must have been only like the day after they wrenched the poor thing from her womb. Seemed strange at the time that the mama was talking to Katie Couric, she seemed a little non-plussed y/k. Maybe it was drugs though(post c-section). I was yelling at dh and the tv "why are you talking to these people? And why is your baby out of your womb," and then I was yelling at them to do kangaroo care. Dh just looked at me like I was crazy. Even though I know he was secretly nodding his head in agreement.
