I’ve been thinking about this subject more and more these days, obviously as I’m three months away from meeting our precious baby boy. I decided to put a few of my thoughts down because it’s a topic that people seem to raise with me on a very regular basis. For some or other reason.
Birth is something I’ve refused to acknowledge or think about up until now. As much of a reality as it is, I have avoided thinking too deeply about it simply because it scares the living daylights out of me. Why is that? Yes it’s an incredibly painful experience to go through, we all know that, more than I could even begin to understand without having gone through it. And no, I’m sure there is nothing easy about it. I have also recently realized that its OTHER PEOPLE that have instilled this intense fear in me. Not myself, the books or the natural birth videos I’ve seen online, but other people.
