What about parents who don’t resuscitate?

The Seattle Pacific University nursing students were quite inquisitive and thoughtful. Here’s a question from a student about what I think about parents, who, in our situation, choose not to try to save their babies. The answer is that I can understand such a choice as mature thinking, but I disagree with it. The book “This Lovely Life,” by Vicki Forman, is a thoughtful exploration by a parent who made a request for her babies to not be resuscitated.
