I'm the first and only c-section of the family,and the family never took it very well mostly they just had no idea what to say. My SIL is 9 months pregnant and her son is breech so if he doesn't turn by the time she goes into labor then she has a c-section. She says she's ok but she doesn't look it and I know that some of her friends and quite a few of our family members are kind of judgey crunchy if you know what I mean(they were already trying to guilt her out of an epidural even though she has a chronic pain disorder). I know that she normally goes along with these people so that makes it even harder.
Any ideas on what to say or maybe a gift of some type? I just know that I don't want her to go through what I did feeling like a leper having everybody tell you sorry and that you can do better next time.
So how do I help?
