I get so infuriated watching shows on TLC like Baby Story and seeing stupid, ignorant doctors talk perfectly healthy women into getting pitocin and an epidural, when they went in there planning on a natural drug-free birth. Then they lay there for HOURS with no idea what’s going on down there and no way to know when to push. Just so frustrating! So unnatural and ridiculous!
I watched Birth As We Know It yesterday and got to see some amazing, strong women give birth naturally and beautifully. It’s so amazingly frustrating to then turn on TLC and see someone who is perfectly healthy and intending on going drug-free end up getting talked into doing what’s convenient for the doctor… Makes me want to scream.
