                                         ***********
I really had no idea how out-of-my-mind I would be in the middle of
labor.  I had no idea how much labor would alter my brain, alter my
personality, and render me unable to think rationally and say no.
I now know that, for a hospital birth, one needs incredibly strong labor
support that is willing to bare their teeth and knock some skulls in
order to keep the woman's birthing place peaceful, calm, and
adrenaline-free.  Adrenaline IS the anti-oxytocin drug.
      
  Adrenaline --> Failure to progress --> C-section
                          Think twice.  Hire a doula.
