I was talking to my doula early last week about my fear about not being able to go through a natural childbirth. How I am afraid that I am going to wimp out from the pain.
Then I told her that talking to her and reading (lurking) your birth stories really helps me regain my confidence...
She then proceeded to tell me that her and another doula are looking to publish positive natural birth stories... of all kinds. She asked me to ask you ladies if you would be interested in sharing your birth stories with her (and the rest of the world). LOL I know that if they help me, they will help MANY other women to have confidence in themselves and their bodies.
If you are interested please go to their website: Doulas of CNY and email Chris Goldman (my doula).
Thanks ladies!

That's wonderful! I'll go pull up my birth story and send it to her. I also was helped so much by reading the stories of other NCB'ers.

What a great idea! I have the same fears you do, and I definitely find that it helps to read everyone elses stories.
