Nope. Not *those* birthers. I mean the ladies who think that there is only one way to give birth in these modern times. Be it in a plastic wading pool in your kitchen, a scheduled c-section, sitting on a bouncy ball, music on, music off, candles lit, by yourself, surrounded by everyone you know, with a doula, epidural, no epidural, TV on, TV off, recorded for posterity, oh hell no cameras until after you shower, baby stays in the room, nurses give you a break, and on and on and on it seems that everyone has an opinion and a STRONG opinion.
Well, I am just going to toss this out there. That maybe, just maybe, the things you do for the 40 weeks before that day, and the things you do for the rest of your freakin’ life after that day, are a little more important than: that one day.
But I don’t give a crap about weddings, anniversaries or birthdays either, as long as I get good presents and cake. Oh! Two things that were also there when I gave birth!
Just do what you want as long as it’s safe, and let other people do what they want, and STFU about it. badmood
