The post below got me thinking. I know a lot of people have very specific ideas about what kind of birth experience they want to have to the point where they are devastated if they don't have the birth experience they wanted. I know people who months after are still upset about it, and I think it really negatively impacted their first few weeks with their LOs.
I've really never understood this. I, personally, just wanted a healthy baby with minimal damage (to both me and the baby). Obviously, most people prefer vaginal to c-section, but if I had really needed a c-section, I would have dealt with it. I am genuinely curious why people have such strong feelings about a "birth experience." Is it that everyone is just skeptical of doctors and medicine and think that all doctor's just want to cut them open? Or is it that everyone believes a med free birth is better for the baby?
This is not meant to be snarky at all. I would really just like to understand this.
