Our expert says:
Such sad things happen, but I haven't come across any case in which it was due to anything the mother did or did not do. YOu made the best decision you could think of in the situation you faced, not to be selfish, and not presumably having been informed of any such risk to the baby.
Maybe things would have gone better with a caesar, maybe not. And your doctors should have provided and re-assured you of, adequate pain control through the relevant period, whatever option was chosen.
But they should also have insisted on providing you with proper counselling from a suitable counsellor, to help you talk through what happened and how you feel about it.
