Christine- No one is critising woman on having a VB!! In fact, i think you will find ,its the woman who have had VB's are incessantly having to mention that they had one,and then go on about how they "did it drug free" etc etc.
I am not trying to sound nasty, so i hope i am not coming across this way, but most of the posts by woman who've had ceasers,feel the need to justify their reasons,because of the obscure amount of woman who had VB's and BRAG about them.
Yes yes, i understand its an empowering thing to give birth with no pain relief,and its really great that u did what nature intended..i honestly think that u have every right to boast!
But woman who have had ceasarians (myself being one), have also got their own war stories to tell about child birth, but are ridiculed, because we DIDNT go it drug free, or AS NATURE INTENDED!!
(for the record,i had elective ceasers,and wouldnt have it any other way, so im not just "lashing out coz i have issues")
i really do think its just become this massive COMPETITION for a lot of woman, and at the end of the day, if everyone just "got off their high horse", everyone could feel more comfortable in their choice of child birth no matter how the little darling came out!
As i said, this is not intended to be nasty, i just feel like every where i turn on this dam site lately, theres someone b!+c#ing about how they gave birth as opposed to someone else?
Who really cares!!!
