Does anyone know why Mia is anti homebirth?? I would never do it myself and will never fathom anyone who is high risk doing it, but at the end of the day, if you are healthy etc then I can't see a problem with it.
Babies die in hospitals aswell for many many reasons, blaming the mother and calling her a birthzilla is very hurtful.
I don't care how another women births her child, all I care about when my time comes is that both myself and my baby will be safe and healthy. All I ask is that I'm informed about what's going on and I would like medical staff (yes I WILL give birth in a hospital) to talk TO me not ABOUT me.
I believe that it's not just the author with these views, plenty of hubbers criticise eachother for birthing decisions all the time, much the same as AP, Immunisations and BFvsFF . The competition stems from one persons beliefs being forced upon another. "I had a cesarean" or "I formula fed" "I would NEVER do that, it's cheating"
I have told friends when they talk about their births that when my times comes I'm open to drugs, if they're there to make it easier them I'll take them, and for this I have been crucified. Really, How does my decision affect their lives? It's when people start putting down your decision that it becomes competitive. And this is what I believe she is writing about.

I didn't realise being mainstream precluded women from being feminists?
She is an deadset twit. Thats all there is too it really. Her stories aren't even worth arguing over, she does it all for shock value, and she gets it every time she does a ridiculous story.
Oh my goodness. She's not......'mainstream' is she? Heaven help us from this evil woman!
