Various thoughts piled up my mind:
‘Had I been aware of the pregnancy process earlier, could I have avoided this situation now?’
‘What more could have I done to improve this situation?’
‘Should I educate myself on the cesarean process now?’
I was waiting to unwind myself after a tough day. By the time we reached home, it was mid-evening. I grabbed a chair and went to my terrace garden with a cup of lemon tea to sort out my perplexed state.
A sip of the hot tea amidst the chilly breeze flavoured with the smell of flowers gave me a sense of relaxation. As I was gazing at the spring leaves of the plants, I was reminded of an incident that happened that morning. While I was walking outside the scan room to wake up my asleep baby, I noticed a married woman of my age entering the room for a checkup. She seemed to be restless, hoping for some positivity. When she left the room, her eyes were swelled up, yet she was confident. It was my scan turn next. As I managed hard to lay on my back, my scan doctor received a call from a senior doctor. She explained on the phone that the woman who recently left had three masses in her ovary, and surgery would be the solution. Unknown distress struck me on hearing it. With many dreams of having a baby, a woman of my age must undergo a considerable procedure to set things right. I saw her again while filling up the admission form and wished her positivity and health.
A flock of birds flying back to their nest and the chirps of the sparrows nearby caught my attention, and I landed back to the present moment. It dawned on me that my situation was like a drop in the ocean. Many others are facing tremendous issues in conceiving a baby and are fighting bravely to experience the bliss of childbearing with all their strength. I braced myself happily to welcome my little charm via cesarean.
To all the mothers sailing out in the same boat, baby in breech position is okay, little complexities are okay, and a cesarean is also okay. Just go with the flow, and you sure will thrive through it. Thankfully, our medical technologies have significantly advanced to ensure safe delivery amidst various complexities.
Yes, a breech baby is sure a blessing, and cesarean delivery is also affirmative.
