After having my 17MO lately I've been on a "One born every minute" "baby story" don't know the name of it on Discover health about birth? kick. In all of these and including myself (emergency C-section) all ask for the same thing drug free natural birth. That is what we are trained to believe that we have to have. After watching so many of these show the "perfect birth" theory just doesn't exist. I watched my SIL and friends despair over having a c-section. They all felt robbed of what??? Seriously what?? We are led to believe that c-sections are evil and that they are done 99 percent of the time because we have sadistic dr's that are knife happy. So not true a doctor and a midwife are there for the baby. Whatever way your baby comes doesn't take away from the happiness and joy you experience for the rest of your life. Rather then push "perfect birth" push your baby will come out the way that suits him/her best.
