Just don't plan too much, you don't know what will happen.
Those are 2 of my favs too! It drives me insane when people tell other women not to plan because anything could happen and you'll just be devastated if everything doesn't go as planned, birth is unpredictable, etc. While I agree that yes, birth is unpredictable, it's not stupid to plan and visualize the type of birth you want.

If you're not prepared for a NCB, you're probably going to fight the pain, but I highly doubt there was anything "traumatic" about that. I also don't like when others imply a natural birth isn't peaceful or calm because a woman can feel the contractions. Even if I'm screaming like a banchee through contractions and pushing, it's worth it to feel my body and be able to work with it than to just sit back and be a bystander at my own birth.
Oh yeah, the whole peace thing drives me crazy too or, "I just want to be able to enjoy my baby's birth."

Thank you for my beautiful siggy Vicki!

See my growing belly!

^ I enjoyed my birth of my first which was not a NCB, but the recovery was a B! I couldn't sit for weeks. Enduring a bit of pain during contractions was well worth feeling 100% just days later. It's called labor for a reason.
