Hoping for some soothing words from other grans. I have two grandchildren from my elder daughter. The first was born after a pretty awful experience, induction at 42 weeks gestation, long obstructed labour, failed Ventouse extraction, Caesarian section and second a normal delivery of a smaller baby. These children are now 10 and 8 years old.
My second daughter is, after fifteen years of marriage expecting her first baby at 36. She has been told she is carrying a baby which is large for her size and has been given the option of induction at 39 weeks or Caesarian section.
I am finding that I am so stressed by the whole experience this time that I am feeling that I am not being as supportive as I could be. Any pointers would be much appreciated. The baby’s due date is 29th November.
P.S. I have a medical background which I think makes matters worse!
