I actually found this article offensive and dismissive. Quite frankly I'm sick of hearing 'at least you had a healthy baby' like somehow I didn't want that. I desperately wanted a VBAC for my 2nd birth bc 1) it's the safest way and 2) bc the wonderful method of 'keeping my lady bits intact' actually led to severe physical and emotional trauma. I mean my god, what a birthzilla I was when I left the ob's surgery balling my eyes out finding out I had to have another c/s!
Quite frankly I couldn't give a damn how others birth. But I want to experience what my body was designed to do without major abdominal surgery. If that's birthzilla or competitive then meh.
