My doctor said that my baby would not be born alive.
Then she said that if she was born alive, it would be for only a few breaths.
I asked if she could be put on a respirator ( or ANYTHING) to help her.
She said no.
She said that if I made them do that, it would only be further trauma to my baby and her few minutes (if that) of life.
She said she had ABSOLUTELY no chance of survival.
I couldn't further traumatize her.
Not with NO chance of survival.
I loved her too much.
After all, she was only 21 weeks and six days gestation.
Thankfully her doctor didn't feel the same.
