Sometimes the arrival of our baby or babies doesn't go to plan, even for those mums who don't necessarily have a birth plan, a mother can still feel sad about the way their baby was born and sometimes the thought of feeling bad about a delivery that resulted in a perfectly healthy baby makes us feel guilty- and then we aren't just dealing with sadness or grief for the delivery we didn't get, we are also emotionally piling on guilt over those initial emotions. 

Emotions on top of emotions on top of more emotions can honestly feel really heavy!

Really we don't need to feel guilty or race to “get over” our delivery experience. What we need is to acknowledge our feelings and give ourselves time to make room for them.
