Quote from renerian
I am one of the women who would have died in childbirth/had problems with both kids. One time we knew ahead of time there were problems, the other time we did not.
I was thanking the Lord for the nurses who took care of me doing natural childbirth the long and hard way.
There were some old threads of this nature as I know this topic came up several times before.
Same here....with both of my girls. The older one was delivered via "emergency forceps delivery". They told me that they didn't even have time to do a c-section.
The second one, seconds after she was born, and the placenta was out, I started hemorraging. I had a piece of placenta that didn't deliver. I remember hearing "Get Dr....... in here STAT!" I had a shot to make the bleeding stop, some lady's arm up inside of me stopping the bleeding, and watching in the mirror.....looked like a coke bottle upside down emptying.
Sorry to be so graphic, but I would have not been able to live long enough to make it to the hospital if this had happened at home.
So, if I wasn't at the hospital either my baby, or myself (or both) could have died. I just don't see how anyone can take that chance.
