_What was your reasoning for choosing the birth plan that you did (medicated, non-medicated)? Did you follow through with your plan or did some circumstance-- by choice or not-- change that?
Very interesting ~ it often seems that the same "naturalists" that promote breastfeeding also promote drug-free births (although of course that's not always true). This is a really interesting insight into how lessening the pain of childbirth can improve your likeliness to breastfeed.
~Please approach this as another OPINION-- which y...ou know I like to represent equally :) ~
Choices. It's about choices. Arguing and ridiculing over birthing options is as dumb as the SAHMs v Working Moms fight. As a writer, a mom, and just a girl in general, I try to offer information. Admittedly, some opinions are thrown in there-- consciously and unconsciously just through the types of things I post.
I don't understand why anyone would CHOOSE to have a C-section, but claiming that a woman who gave birth with an epidural or via C-section is any less of a mom/woman/warrior/hero is utterly ridiculous. Same goes for breastfeeding; I don't understand why someone wouldn't at least TRY, but what they choose long-term is not for your judgement.
I LOVE all the differing opinions of our friends and followers, and ALWAYS welcome comments-- however similar or adverse they may be to my own, but judging instead of informing is not ok.
