I didn't have much regret over eloping, but I did have a ton of regret for having a csection. My first born son came into the world and neither I nor my husband witnessed it. They had to knock me out so they wouldn't allow my husband in the room. I mourned that experience for years!
But now, my son will start Kindergarten in September and it doesn't really matter to me how he came into the world; just that he is here. Things don't always turn out the way you plan. I once read that you have to give up the life you have planned in order to receive the life that is waiting for you.
Why didn't they support you?
My in laws support us so much. I am very blessed.
I don't know anything about birth, so I cannot speak to your regret. I am glad you feel better about how your son came into this world.
