My favorite comment was from a fellow NCB mama and she said "dont you love how powerful you feel, knowing you just brought a whole person into the world yourself." I still think back on that comment...because I can't imagine ANY other thing I could do that could make me feel so victorious and amazed with my body.

The worst, and I have gotten it several times, is the "well, I am not a hero" comment. Or "ah, I don't need to prove anything to anyone by having a baby naturally." I don't understand why NCB is synonymous with "hero" or "proving something." I have nothing to prove either...which is decidedly not why I chose NCB!
