    Unfortunately I think bad stuff happens at every hospital. The hospital where I am going to deliver had 2 mothers die within 2 weeks of each other from complications following c-sections. The strange thing was that they worked together and were friends and both delivered healthy baby girls but died in the days following the delivery. That's why I tried going to a different doctor that delivered at a different hospital but as many of you may remember that doctor's bedside manner was horrible following my miscarriage so I went back to my doc that delivers at the hospital where this happened.

    Oh no, Mo. You are right, stuff does happen at every hospital, but I think it doesn't really hit home until it's going to happen where you are supposed to deliver. I am sure you know that!

    Apparently another baby died today.

      This was on Nancy Grace last night. The babies that died were twins that were born a month early. The hospital is saying they died from other complications and from being born premature. A month early for twins is not THAT early.

      The parents are only 17 and 18, I believe. I feel so bad for their entire family!

          I saw some of this on Nancy Grace! I thought it was a dream after reading the post yesterday, but it must have been in the middle of the night when I was feeding Austin! So hard to remember what goes on in the middle of the night when I get up so much!
          I'm sure with all of this exposure, things will be fine there.
