Giving Birth

22 Sep

In my today’s newsletter I got links to videos of births. First, I watched a natural birth, not in a hospital, with no meds. Yikes. No, I get all the benefits and all – but seriously, yikes.

Then I watched a live video in a hospital with an epidural. The video isn’t too graphic, but detailed enough. I am glad I watched the natural birth first, though. For me, this looked much, much better. And I actually cried when I saw the baby’s head emerge. It was such an amazing miracle.

    Ah, now you’ve made me cry as well! Watched both videos and seeing the babies emerge brought me to tears too… so amazing!

      the funny thing is that have I watched this video before I got pregnant, I would have been grossed out, I am sure 😉

    I have to say, I had a completely natural birth (no meds) in a hospital and it was awesome….I’m really not looking forward to a c-section this time.

      Hmmm. Between natural birth and c-section? I am not sure what I would pick. To me, both sound equally scary. I admire you courage for doing both!
