So I was late to the delivery room -my son’s head was already pretty much out when we got to the hospital. Because of the fact that I had to pretty much hold him in for the car ride I had extensive nerve damage there. I always felt alone with this as doctors kept reassuring me that it was fine and nothing was wrong even though I had no sensation when my bladder was full and the muscles in my anus barely worked. It was only recently that I took to the internet to see if anyone else had experienced something similar. I was shocked to find dozens of articles about how people felt alone in this pain. This is why I wrote this article. To let anyone who may have gone through something like this know that they are NOT alone. You can always find support in others whether or not they have experience this too.
