Hello there! I am Sasha. (all together now, Hi Sasha) Im addicted to anything that has to do w/ NCB. hahah
Anyway I am mommy to DD Finley, who will be 6 months on the 27th of this month.
I was invited over by your lovely host Bethany, who i know from the May 2010 DDC/Playroom. In a nutshell this is why
I wish I was as informed a year ago as I am now; I was induced with Finley. Though I know that is why I educated myself-- after the fact. I felt cheated, and didn't think I had any other option, but to be induced. They made me feel that it was, "best for the baby's health," and "she's so big she might not fit if we don't induce. " sigh.
I feel a bit angered by it, and feel that as women we have been misinformed, and 'sold' by the hospitals.
There's nothing I can do to change my birthing experience w/ Finley, but I hope to help inform those around me& do it differently the next time around. (sound familiar Bethany? lol )
I am very excited to get to know all of you ladies, and hopefully learn a lot, as well as hopefully contribute to the board!
Hi Sasha, I'm new here too And I had a VERY similar birth experience with my first as well. I felt pushed, and like you said "misinformed". I'm hoping to have a much better birth this time around. Nice to meet you!
