A close friend of mine who happens to be a Doula got a little judgmental toward me last night regarding my labor and delivery choices.
I am not opposed to: Hospitals, epidurals/pain meds, and surgical intervention when necessary. I like and trust my doctor, and have faith in the practice as a whole. She seems to have huge issues with this. I think she would only be happy if I were headed to the farm, armed only with a strap of leather for pain management. LOL!
Later in the evening, we were talking about her recent engagement. She told me they had a date picked (middle of October) and that they want me to photograph the wedding. ::record skip:: I stopped photographing weddings last year. They are too much work and not enough money - my friend KNOWS this. I will also have a 3.5 month old baby at the time of her wedding. I have no idea how I will feel - and I really don't think I will be ok with saddling my husband with 100% baby-duty for the entire weekend, at the out of town wedding while I work.
I had to vent - but please offer me suggestions on how to shut this thing down!
