I’m so sorry you went through all of that. Pregnancy and childbirth are difficult and emotional in so many ways, and yet people find ways to make it more difficult.
I had a miscarriage earlier this year, and my own mother’s response was to suggest that it was somehow my fault — that my subconscious knew it wasn’t the right time or my body wasn’t ready and took action as a result.
Everyone is a self-proclaimed expert on pregnancy and motherhood, and it’s a problem.
I’m glad you were able to push through the messages you received and do what was best for you and your children. Go you!
