Hi Mama's. It's been a long time, and it's crummy that my post is a rant, but I'm really upset and I wanted to share with you guys in the hopes that you will talk some sense into me! Ok-here's the story. I had a close friend attend Lily's birth for 2 reasons. First to video it, but mainly I wanted her to see a natural birth so that she would be inspired to have a VBAC. She was pregnant at the time, and had an "emergency" C-section with her first child (this one will be her 2nd). I knew she didn't have much confidence in her body, so I wanted to show her that she can
do it. We have talked a lot about her birth experience. About hospital interventions. You know, the whole 9 yards. I never pushed my beliefs on her, I just shared my knowledge and experiences. After Lily was born (her birth was most awesome and Fun!) my friend said she was going to go naturally. She said if I could do it she could! I was so excited, that was my main
reason for wanting her to attend. Well, I have recently (New Years Eve) found out that she has changed her mind, and is now having a scheduled C-section!
I can't freakin believe it. I am upset because I can't believe that some people choose
to be uneducated sheep about birth. I'm sorry that is so harsh, but I'm really pissed off right now. I also feel really ineffective. Like I can't affect any change. I don't know what else I could have done. I failed. And now my friend and her sweet one will be in the hands of an OB with a knife. What a crappy situation.
