I think honestly people dont realize how they will feel after a typical hospital birth, they think if they avoid a c/s then thats all that matters. That is exactly what happened to me, I had a lot of L&D experience and didnt question anything (very unlike me!). I really didnt realize that after a hospital-epi and everything that tends to go with, the experience can leave you feeling like a failure, with this unsettled feeling that i couldnt really pinpoint what was causing and didnt understand. I think people sometimes need to go through one way to see how its not the best way, like innocent until proven guilty, people just think the hospital is best until proven NOT best by their own experience!

Another big reason is fear. If almost everyone she knows went that route then its like trekking into unknown territory going natural. Mail her a book!

The power and intensity of your contractions cannot be stronger than you, because it is you~ Unknown ~
