Alright my fellow brethren, I require vent space and cuddles from the other insane birthers like moi
I am tired of being told by people who not only don't freebirth, but don't like freebirth for whatever personal reasons they might be, why it is that I chose it and why it is that I like it.
EXCUUUUUUUUSE YOU! I will be the judge of why I chose what I chose and what it means to my family and I. NOT anyone else!
I have my reasons, but I do not have to give them to anyone else, they're mine.
I'm not an idiot, I think before making choices, especially when the welfare of my child is involved. To assume otherwise is to be a presumptuous, rude, and seriously WRONG.
In the past 24 hours it has been suggested to me that I chose to freebirth because I am misinformed and uneducated and implied that I did it because other people did and I wanted them to like me And that my birth was unnaturally long and this was probably because I lead a lifestyle that is "sedentary" (read: my birth would not have taken long if I wasn't lazy).
This boggles my mind! My home birth with no medical presence, no interventions, which unfolded in it's own time, respected by those present, was unnatural because it took as long as it needed to take????
Does that mean the natural thing would have been to go to hospital and get my baby needlessly caesareaned out?
Obviously whatever happened at my freebirth was a-ok coz the closest thing either DD or I had to a negative outcome was my vagina grazed during 2nd stage.
