Doctors aren't out to kill you or your children. Childbirth isn't inherently safe. Science is actually smarter than your intuition. Lighten up. Use sunscreen.
And later on down the road when you feel the situation has calmed down, you may want to ask her about where she got the bra. Even if she took it without asking, I wouldn't accuse her of stealing, I think that would just be very sensitive for her.
I think you just have to ask. Sit down with her, show her the item, ask where she got it. If you're OK with this, tell her that once it's returned, you'd be happy to get her one of her own if she really feels she needs/wants one, but that she can't take stuff that's not hers without asking.
It's not going to be fun, but it will be out in the open.
I'm not saying it's okay to steal. I'm saying that I wouldn't get mad at the girl. Like I stated in my post, I do believe that this is a much more potentially sensitive situation. If she stole a pack of gum from her cousin, I wouldn't think twice about an immediate reaction.
Personally, I'd handle it with kid gloves. That's just my opinion.
