Competitive childbirth - it’s ‘mum-upmanship’ | Article | The Punch

It's about childbirth. While I know we gave birth a while ago now, I think that a lot of women continue to beat themselves up about their births for a long time. I think this article is funny, well-written and delivers a nice message that at the end of the day, "Surely what matters most isn’t how our child arrives, or how this compares with the mum-next-door’s experience, but what we do with our baby when it gets here."

FYI it's an Australian article so uses 'mum' and talks of a few famous names you might not hear about in the US so much .

Thanks to Meganpixel for my beautiful siggie!

That was a good read! It's so true how we treat each other as mothers, whether consciously or not. But ultimately she's right, it really doesn't matter how our babies get here. My situation isn't your situation.
