*I have observed that the most followed blogs that I know of include a picture with every post. thought that was interesting :]
**My desire to not offend people came back after a night's sleep.
my soap box post pretty much said this:
I believe that natural birth should be looked into much, much more than it is.
Women should do more research about birthing and what all goes on, and shouldn't just accept the way of epidurals, petocin, etc.
just EDUCATE YOURSELVES! its disgusting that most women do more research for new phone plans, car purchases, home buying, etc than they do about having a baby.
and please watch "the business of being born" on instant play on netflix, if it is available to you.
even if its just to show you other options!
Show more belief in yourself. Women's bodies were made to give birth. Even if you "don't like pain", the experience can be beautiful for many women, pain and all. Don't give up so easily without even considering other options.
