This is what the WHO says about it. I know women will do what they want, and i'm not trying to sound obtuse, but shouldn't the pain of childbirth be something you should be aware of before getting deciding to have a baby?
I mean fear is natural but it isn't logical. The thought of childbirth scared me the first time but in the end it was't as bad as i thought, but to forego the process all together out of convenience or because some think it's actually better for the baby (Those women who think surgery is better than vaginal birth and not out of medical necessity) , is misinformed. Our bodies were made to handle this. Strength comes from enduring pain.
I just think our medical system fails so many women when it comes to childbirth. They treat it like it's an illness. A lot of OBGYNs would rather schedule a quick c-section and get back to their golf rather than actually care for individual women's needs. Not blaming the woman as much as the medical establishment that encourages this kind of thing.
