This is a virtual b*tch slap in regards to this horsesh*t on the CHATTER FREE Birth Stories Thread:
I have yet to read one storey here of a natural or drug free birth.
1. Chatter Free means no comments. Especially rude, mom-shaming ones. The point of that thread is to link your birth story, or just tell it, with maybe a picture if you want of your new squish, and Love Its are the only responses those posts should get. The first girl that said Congratulations got called out for breaking the rules of chatter free, and you just Mom-shamed, which deserves it's own special kind of call-out because it is UNACCEPTABLE on a Mommy board.
2. How these babies enter this world safely is the decision of the mother and the medical staff. Especially considering it isn't even February yet, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE BABIES are EARLY, which may indicate some kind of intervention. It is not your decision or your place to judge a woman on how she brings a healthy child into this world. Shame on you.
3. Just because you decide that a "Natural or drug free birth" is what you want doesn't mean it's what everybody else wants for themselves or that it's superior to any other birth, or *GASP* that YOU might even get a natural or drug free birth!! S*** happens sometimes and child birth is no joke. Before modern medicine when all we had were natural and drug free child births, moms and babies DIED. A lot. So congratulations on your chosen birth plan; I'm sure a lot of these women and others have a similar one, but be open-minded and understand that it doesn't always happen and you have to be prepared for curve balls.
Ultimately keeping mom and baby safe and healthy is the end goal and be effing respectful of how it happens. Damn.
Congratulations to all the moms that have given birth so far. You are a WARRIOR, regardless of how your baby came, and I am in AWE of every single one of these stories! Keep them coming!
