Whenever anyone finds out that I'm planning on natural, un-medicated childbirth, they always have quite a reaction. I've been laughed at, been told "just you wait and see," "you'll never be able to do it," etc. I find this really discouraging and it makes me question if I will be able to do it. I have thought about having a friend "on call" for the delivery in case I want a second support person, but none of my friends have done delivery without an epidural. In fact, I don't know anyone in my generation who has done natural childbirth.
Anyone else get these comments? Do they upset you?
