Quoting Santana Espinoza:" Im due in a month nd 2weeks and im considering giving natural birth but everytime I talk to someone about ... [snip!] ... someone about it they start telling me ohh no and im like I know its gonna hurt I dont expect it to be all calm and pain free"
my family is the same way. They try to remind me that my mother wanted no pain meds but ended up using them anyway or telling me of someone they knew that had a terrible natural birth. Completely unsupportive of my birth center plan. It's like they don't realize no matter how many times I tell them that I've done my research and know exactly what I'm getting myself into. You just have to keep your head up and tell them, "think what you want, but this is what I want, and it's MY birth, and I'm doing it MY way." :]
