Not unless it was a "horror" story. There was never any positive association with birth in my family, until me. I'm the only person in my family who wanted a home birth (didn't get it because assisted home births are illegal here in VA and she was not planned), knew that midwives were still around, etc. I'm the only person who went drug free, I'm the only person who thinks that birth is a natural thing and that you don't HAVE to have drugs to make it through, etc. I intend to change all of that with my daughter (and any other children we may have) and raise her to know the facts and all options involving birth long before she gets pregnant for the first time.
