my SIL is pregnant with her first baby, due at the end of May, beginning of June.
her best friend has 2 children, and both were born by c-section. I don't know this woman, so I can't say for sure that it was unnecessary, and I don't think that's even relevant at this point, but my SIL keeps saying how "tiny" her friend is and how the baby "was just way too big for her" to give birth to.
I'd like to show her some articles about how your body won't grow a baby that is too big for you, and how your height doesn't have much bearing on being able to give birth vaginally to a "large" baby.
I can send her some links to the great birth stories here, but it would be nice to reference some published pieces as well.
anyone have any links handy? I tried searching mothering, but it wasn't working out for me.
