I find this really frustrating, too. Or people who are really dismissive of it with FTMs, with their "Oh, you think you want it now, but just wait until the contractions really start, you'll be begging for the epi, ha ha ha."
Ha, ha nothing. It's a lot of work to deprogram yourself from all the messages you've been getting about childbirth your entire life, and I think that puts us at a cultural disadvantage (as opposed to other women who grow up in places where nonmedicalized birth is normal).
Also, congratulations on week 17. That must feel pretty amazing!
