    I think I would have always chosen to save myself. I guess as a mother I feel wrong in thinking that way... If I had to choose to save my own life and or DS/DD now I would lay my life down for them in a heartbeat... I guess I just would never really know unless I was faced with the situation... I hate thinking of my own mortality.

    That depends on the prognosis for the mum too, I wouldn't terminate a pregnancy to treat a condition that itself might be terminal, or life limiting (serious cancer, stroke, brain damage).
    I also have in my advanced directives that I don't wish to be kept alive in a vegetative state, or where I would have an unacceptable quality of life, but before any treatments are withheld or refused there should be a pregnancy test preformed, and if positive every attempt should be made to get the baby to a viable age before my wishes are met.

    I'd save the mother (me) why? Because I would want to be around to parent my 3 other children/to spend my life with my fiance (if we had none).

    Although it's a moot point I guess because as far as I know, protocol at any hospital would be to save the mother.

    Always mother. Always, especially if there are already other kids.

    For me, I'd say baby. Dp would say me.

    IMO, it should always be the mother, ESPECIALLY if she has existing children already.

    We actually discussed this the other night!!! So random I saw this thread and had to post.

    DP and I both said each other. (As im currently pregnant - and it will only be me being pregnant, but i still said id save her) At the end of the day, your each others best friend and you want them there no matter what. I would die if I didn't have DP, she is my everything.

    It would be the hardest thing waking up and finding your partner chose you over the baby... But it's one of those unfortunate things where no one ever should have to make the choice, but it happens unfortunately.

    Touch wood for ALL of us that this never happens

    Mother, because I don't want to think about me dying. And as blunt as it sounds, my husband knows and loves me already but I really don't think he loved our daughter until she was born, so I think he'd cope a lot better with losing an unborn child than he would losing me.
