I am so surprised at the negativity that surrounds birth. The actual labor process and trusting the woman body. Why is our society so wrapped up in fear? What is to fear about birth? It is a completely natural process IF left alone. The more that someone other than the mom interferes the more problems that will arise. I just do not understand why everyone that surrounds a new mom in labor is so fearful. I guess I will have to "chalk" this on up to not being educated about the birth process, the risks of drugs and hospitals, and the mother's ability. Go get educated before you start being negative to a mom in labor! Or don't say anything at all but positive affirmations!
