If you knew an almost 39-year old woman who'd had three miscarriages, a massive placental abruption during delivery that killed her son, and unexplained hemorrhaging during a D&C, would you wonder why she would even consider trying to get pregnant again?
What if you found out that she also has one blocked fallopian tube, a bicornuate uterus, and an issue with high blood pressure?
What if she'd already had one lap surgery because she was "riddled with scar tissue" from a C-section and subsequent blood infection, and that her OB suspects that she may also have Asherman syndrome, a "rare condition" where adhesions form inside the uterus?
What if she'd been told that the scar tissue her OB removed during the lap may have all regrown more than 6 months ago?
Would you think she was certifiable for continuing to try to get pregnant - particularly when it seems so difficult for her to stay pregnant?
Would you encourage her to keep trying?
Would you tell her that the odds are so stacked against her that it might be wiser and healthier to move on?
Would you keep her at arm's length?
Would you tell her to pray harder?
Would you tell her to send positive energy out into the universe?
Would you tell her what she wants to hear?
Would you tell her what you'd want to hear?
Would you tell her the truth?
