Interesting birth story on msn.com

It's a little bit of a long article, but it's an article written by a woman who was traumatized by her first birth experience.  She was in an induction that wasn't progressing with an overly aggressive OB... anyone want to guess what she ended up with?

Anyways, I was pleased to see such an article on a mainstream webpage.

Didn't you just have a friend that ended up with a c section after a failed induction?

That was a good article. I am surprised at the chick who played Blossom, though. If I read correctly, she said that a baby that can't survive a natural birth isn't good for the human race (worded differently in the article). That is just wrong. I now feel that women should do what is best for both themselves and the child. Normally, that means a Med free delivery. I realize that OB's are needed because sometimes, a csection or induction is best. God help that chick if she ever needs an intervention. Will she just allow her child and possibly herself die? I am guessing not considering what she went through the first time.

Actually, she said that although there are some that subscribe to the thought that can't survive a natural birth aren't favored evolutionarily, she does not agree with that.

OK. Good. I reread that a couple times and it just wasn't computing. How could anyone think that, anyways? That's just cruel.

I was shocked by that quote, also. I had to read it a few times to understand it. I wonder if any of those women who think that way ever lost a child during childbirth.

This was good. I was induced for preeclampsia and it took me months to grieve my experience.
