Hi everyone,

Don't really want to come in here and be a downer, but I've been feeling so blue since I gave birth in November.  I was hoping for a natural vaginal delivery and ended up with an emergency c-section.  I've just had such a hard time bouncing back!  Not sure why, but I just feel like I failed myself and my child for not being able to deliver the "normal" way.  Anyone else feel this way after their c-section?

(((HUGS))) I'm so sorry you feel that way. I think it is very common to feel let down when you had your heart set on delivering a certain way, and it just doesn't happen. You didn't fail though. You did what it took to get your baby here safely, and you are a rock star for it, mama!! <3
