    There are some people (SOME) who don't realise that yammering about their perfect birth just constantly reminds those of us who've experienced birth trauma how things went poorly for us.

    Ahh but that's right, they're just being proud of their good birth that happened after their bad one. Damn shame they care more about yelling their pride from there rooftops than they do about woman who don't HAVE that solace.

    Just a thought.

    Why is that funny?? This is the root of the problem I have with the article - "let's have a good chuckle at women who find their birth experience incredibly important to them, they need to get their priorities sorted out".

    Well excuuuuse me Mia but my son's birth is absolutely the most important event that has ever and will ever happen to me in my entire life. Not to mention the most important/life-changing physical experience I'll ever have. I don't care if it wasn't that important to you, but stop judging me for allowing it to become a pretty important part of my life's journey. And if I want a friggin birth plan for such an event it doesn't make me a "birthzilla" (so rude!) it makes me prepared and informed. Such a bizarre attitude!

    And your reference to my beautiful, life-giving scar bugs me. How about we all agree this is a no-go zone?

    the whole argument about what type of birth is better is just proof that people feel insecure about their own choices. Those who feel secure in their own choices do not need to put others choices down even if they don't agree with them.

    there is enough pressure on women. Let's support other peoples choices even if we don't agree with them.

My reply to her was childish. It was along the lines of 'well at least my dh is still satisfied by my undamaged vagina.' Immature I know, but boy it felt good at the time. SO when I read the article the first thing that popped into my head was that response when I was attacked about the 'failure' of a birth experience I had with my first.
    I can unerstand this, although I think your response is just as offensive as your SIL's original response. My vajayjay WAS damaged. So was my bum. My DP still loves me and we have no problems in the bedroom whatsoever - he tells me all the time it's pretty and, (TMI) tight.

    I have a small scar down there.

    That does NOT make me damaged goods.

    My back also has a scar from having a mole removed. Probably bigger than my scar down there. My back is still "intact".

    I do agree with you that a CS can be just as beautiful and exciting and special as a VB - but comments like "well MY thingy is intact" are exactly the kind of comments that will have people like your SIL saying stupid things back because those who have VBs have to listen to the same old arguments, too. Funnily enough my ex SIL told me right before I was about to give birth that I would have haemmrhoids and all of these horror stories, none of which happened but she said all of this because she had caesarians and asked me how I was birthing. Should've replied none of your damn business

    Well all going to plan, my partner will have to deal with a caesarean-scarred belly AND a vagina that has birthed a baby. Poor man. He'll probably have to leave me... in search of someone with a flawless belly or a honeymoon fresh vag.

    I can see why some people are getting upset about the article, but I still see she isn't meaning it the way most are taking it, she means about the hoity toity up themselves mums who look down their nose at intervention births like you haven't really had a real birth experience if you had intervention, drugs, c/sections. Those mums do exist.
    Um, I didn't recall saying what you quoted so went back to find it and in fact did not say it
