Is she trying to say that induction and epidurals protect against the cord being wrapped around the neck????????
mama to and and
Not in your group, but as you posted in birth too . . .
I got lots of this from everyone. I think my mother was telling me this because she thought I wouldn't be able to do it. I am known as the wimp in the family, and she had drugs (gas only I think), but I think she was sure I couldn't do it.
I also had a lot of people tell me how awfully painful their births were. In some ways, I actually appreciated it, because I had this la-la-la attitude "it won't hurt that much", so I had some balance going on with my expectations of the pain.
Good luck and you'll be just fine (BTW muscular dystrophy is a genetic disease. She may be thinking of cerebral palsy - but you could just share the first part with her )
