I didn't even get to go into labour with my son and I feel so robbed of the whole birthing process. My baby stopped moving so the performed an emergency c section within 20 minutes of me arriving at the hospital, then my baby was unwell so they whisked him off to another hospital for the first two weeks of his life. I got to visit daily after day 3 but I feel like I missed out on the whole skin-to-skin bonding.
I feel like I spent the whole 9 months of my pregnancy preparing for labour and then didnt even get there.
One friend pointed out to me however that it was not my birth, but my sons so it had to be the way he wanted it.
