Re: Avoided a c-section, but with mixed feelings

Let go of the guilt if you can. There will always be "what ifs" in life as a parent, always, and you can't dwell on them. If the midwives you trusted had said, "no, you need a c-section or he will die", what would you have done? You wanted to tear but your midwife (again, the medical professonal that you DID trust) said you didn't have the extra pushes so you made the decision that didn't line up with your wishes. That shows you aren't a selfish mother or not thinking of your son's well being.

Congratulations on your little boy and I hope you can move on from this.
