I'm just online now, looking at this banner for this new show on Lifetime called "one born every minute".
I haven't even seen it...but the add is pissing me off!
I had natural child birth...and I'm really tired of EVERY depiction showing the screaming, upset, suffering woman as the icon of birth!
Why not the focused, concentrating, singing, rocking in her hips, super-hero woman!? All are part an partial to birth, yet we scare women everywhere and feed this "you need meds" image :(

Well, those are the kind of births that I had. I don't feel any less than then someone who didn't scream or cry. I understand what you mean though. And not all of it is "horrible", I don't like that it's portrayed like that.
