Natural Birth & Parenting Natural Birth & Parenting

gah I hate c-sections

My husband's co-worker's wife just had a baby yesterday. She was "overdue" (2 days past EDD) and went in for an induction, and surprise, ended up with a c-section. It's funny because I've only met her once, but I am so irritated that she had the section! Her OB must be pretty pro-intervention, because she had an appointment on her EDD and he offered (!) to induce to her that day. sigh. It seems so obvious to me that birth is so much simpler than that. My husband asked his co-worker last week if his wife was interested in natural birth, and he said "Well she's not planning a waterbirth or anything weird like that" lol good thing my husband hadn't shared much about our views on birth!

yeah my husband didn't tell him that we had planned a waterbirth for our 3 month old son, and are planning a home waterbirth for the next one :D

What gets me CRAZY is that sooo many folks just don't know what they are missing.

Investing in birth preparation and working for a serene and joyful, gentle natural birth is worth it!

 i have to admit i was one of those, who thought going natural was just crazy. with ds1 i had a very medicated birth (stadol & epi) and planned to do the same with ds2, even went so far as to schedule an induction at 39wks. thankfuly ds2 had other ideas. 2 days before my induction i went into labor. labor started at 7pm 12/10 and i was 10 cm at 7:30am 12/11...he was born at 8:14am and now i am a firm believer in natural and plan to have #3 natural :)

I'm so frustrated. There's a woman in my edd group who's choosing a c-section for her first so her baby won't "suffocate in the birth canal".
