Mothers who cry?

This is a question mainly about the reason why, i think i know but lets pretend i don't. I was working in the hospital the other evening and a young mother comes in, her baby is 6 months and has a hurt (it was broken) finger. She's trying to explain to me through her tears that her baby had her finger... show more This is a question mainly about the reason why, i think i know but lets pretend i don't. I was working in the hospital the other evening and a young mother comes in, her baby is 6 months and has a hurt (it was broken) finger. She's trying to explain to me through her tears that her baby had her finger caught in the door. Nothing out of te orodinary for the reaction of the baby. This is the first mother that has cried at my desk though, the baby was quiet at the time of triage. I guess the mother feels guilty. She said "i'm terrible" so i want opinions. She feels guilty right like she feels it's her fault?
