Hi, I am a mother to a two-year-old daughter born at 24 actual weeks. She was c-sectioned because her placenta gave out and she was dying. Of course she was taken away and I didn't see her until 5 hours later and didn't get to hold her until 2 weeks later. People often ask about the bonding and if anything was weird with that. I have nothing to compare it to so I don't know. I am 12 weeks now and am thinking a lot of my birth. I have a bad deformity that may require another c-section- hopefully at a much later date though if it happens. I have become really attached to the idea of having the baby placed on my chest after birth and I am wondering if c-sectioned babies are taken away to make sure they are healthy and all the fluid is out of their lungs?
