Oh the horror!

I just stayed up way late, reading these comments by the truly uninformed on childbirth. With my mouth hanging open. It deeply saddens me how terrified of birth many women are.

They say giving birth isn't dignified? Oh my my.

Birth is so cool. It's probably the coolest thing I've ever done. It's an otherworldy experience, a challenge, an accomplishment, a rush. A memory forever.

I totally respect the choice to get the drugs (I had a very medicated birth with my first baby) but I can not respect the name calling or the tone.

    Good luck in the next week or so. :)
