I hate seeing all these moms on Herr bragging about natural birth and how they are so awesome and I even saw someone say that they deserve medals. Now before I go on, I will say, I had dd natural, with a midwife in a bathtub. However, I do not feel like I deserve anything because of my CHOICE. and for the fact that I did something NATURAL. Women have managed to give birth without assistance for thousands of years and no one praises then for their bravery and courage. Go to my 101 yr old great grandma who had 14 kids at home in her bed on the farm, and tell her you want an award for having a baby.
