The article mentions a chemical compound that the public could not be able to get from a local pharmacy. But if they would be able to make the run to a bigger hospital, do you think they would have a wisdom to administrate the needed amount without doing some sort of permanent damage?
I personally see her attempt as dangerous manoeuvre, that one should avoid to the last possible moments, as giving a birth - in the situation they are in - would be a big moral booster.
They need hope seriously, and as the group doesn't have an experienced doctor with them, they are in a danger of all sorts of things, in which Lori's desperate attempt tells about the ignorance - that goes in these sort of situations.
The other thing that they need is a counsellor to keep the groups sanity in right place as I don't think that one's mind is really suited to see large number of unnatural entities like undead for a very long.
Some of the things that fight against the sanity is the impossibility that the walker presents in their rotting form, and Max Brookes hypotheses in his Zombie Survival Guide, that the virus produces certain kind of pheromones to repel the insects assistance in the decomposition.
As the survivors in the series doesn't understand that sort of fact, they are bordering certain kind of insanity if their survival instincts doesn't kick in and guide them to find more permanent facility to survive the hard and cold years.
