I just thought this might be a good topic and kept apart from the birth stories thread. I know that some people had awesome births that were not at all traumatic, but the NICU stay afterwards was. I know that some of us had both a difficult birth and a NICU stay. Personally I loathe having to discuss/defend my birth with other MDC members who haven't BTDT in terms of interventions (many of them very neccesary IMO). I'm currently in therapy to deal with depression, much of which I feel is because of my pain and guilt over my daughter's birth. Anyone else want to talk about this? How you're coping, what sets you off, etc. Does anyone else who has been out of the NICU for a long time feel pissed off when people act like you should "get over it"?
