Just listen to your intuition! Your body will tell you what to do. Please try not to have any preconcieved notions about what birth will be like for you. All anyone can do is listen to themselves, but in order to do that we must be LISTENING!!

I knew even *before* my baby was born that I needed to be at the hospital. I was right, she was born with an extremely rare chromosome disorder and spent 5 days in the NICU for rapid breathing and being lethargic to the point that she couldn't eat. Guess my point is, while some people might get the intuition during labor, I got it before. I knew. KNEW. Something was seriously wrong with my baby and that she might die. Thank God, she didn't. Only one midwife and one nurse assisted in her birth, and I did not feel exploited. But, you don't know what a mother's intuition is until you are a mother, whether that be biologically or through adoption- it's still not productive to presume to dictate to other people how they should have handled their births.
