Ladies, this is why we are a part of this group. We have done our homework and want what is best for both our babies and ourselves. I was in tears as I read this because I wonder how often this happens to mothers we know. Please share with others.

 This article made me SOOO freakin' mad when I read it. I can't believe there are places that this happens STILL.  My bestie and I were watching Business of Being Born 2 and they have a segment on sections and apparently BRAZIL has the HIGHEST section rate because of how Normal birth is treated there. They have the hospital set up with a bar that has a window into the nursery so that people can sit and celebrate while looking at the babies (kay that is kinda cool in a way.) It's basically like a hotel, moms check in, have their section and check out. If you want a natural birth, you have no choice in position, you are shaved, episiotomied, flat on your back, and there is a nurse that PUSHES on your baby with each contraction. Now comparetively, wouldn't you want a section too?? It just boggles my mind when I hear stories like this.

I almost threw up when I read that, just because of the emotions it stirred in me, not because it's gross. And it sure started some drama on my Facebook page when I shared it! But it was worth it. :)
