Why would a nurse say that to you?? I guess she was trying to make you feel better, but still!! I had a c-section and I do have some feelings of guilt. I did not take birth classes and I feel that if I had I would have been more confident and better able to stand up to the dr when he ordered bedrest, pit, etc. during my delivery. I still feel that mine could have been avoided, and that's where the guilt comes from. Still, it's over and I've been working on letting it go. I think it's great that you never felt guilty, and I don't understand why anyone would expect you to. You gave birth to your baby...end of story. If I were you I wouldn't worry about how you are "supposed" to feel. Congratulations on your baby!
