So recently I have been reading a lot of birth stories from the JanDDC and a few from the FDDC, and I really like these girls but when I see their birth stories there are a few things that always irritate me...
"we got to take her/him home the next day" - what is this?!?! It's a baby not a new home appliance!
"they let me walk/shower/bathe/push/eat/etc"
"they wouldn't let me" or "I wasn't allowed"

I'm sorry but I can't get over those... Argh! Am I just being a birth fascist for thinking that it shouldn't be about what's allowed but what you want? Irritating!
"I trust birth—not birth attendants—for if you only trust birth that is attended then you really don't trust birth at all. You trust the attendant. And then you start over. Who? Doctor, surgeon, CNM, CPM, SIM? And it goes on and on...." - Carla Hartley
