Is That A Strange Thing To Be Jealous Of?

“A close friend just had a baby —  a home birth. It made me remember my own birth plan and I’m just so jealous that she got to have the birth that I wanted. Is that a strange thing to be jealous of?”

  1. It’s not strange.
    You lost something that brought you happiness, you lost your baby.
    Feeling jealous is normal because you were expecting something beautiful and amazing from the life that grew inside you.
    Don’t feel like it’s wrong, just don’t let it consume you.
    Forever sorry.
