Its a sick macho ritual that women go through. It hurts my heart to see the way that people treat at Marie and the way they talk to us when we dream about the birth we are expecting. Its as if something makes them enjoy trying to burst our naïve perceptions of child birth.
So if you have anything positive to say about this topic I welcome your comments and encouragements.
If you want to tell your war story about birth just to seem tough, the find some one else to scare.
