    Well you should take some credit because it was down to people like you that gave me the courage to believe in myself and my body and make sure I got the birth I wanted.

    Same

    It's interesting. I've had an induction with an epidural, a drug free induction and a c-section and I've copped the most judgement over the drug free birth. From both care providers, strangers, family and some friends - "You trying to be superwoman!", "You don't win a medal/get an award you know", "If you broke your arm you'd have drugs", "No brain, feel no pain, I suppose", "You don't have to be a martyr"...I could go on.

    Women should be encouraged and supported in their choices and should be free to express their happiness, pride, disappointment or whatever, regardless of what they choose - or if they were even able to make a choice, without the snide mum upmanship that goes on.

    Just wanted to say thanks to those who took time to explain what they meant by 'empowerment' regarding their births - that does help to clear it up for me.

    And sorry to the OP for derailing a bit on that point!

    What a self righteous hero she is. She wins the birth competition. Someone get the medal out.

    As a Mum of a child with a high pain threshold I find that insulting. If you really knew what it was like to have a child who doesn't realise they have hurt themselves and continue to do the same thing over and over again because their brain doesn't recognise the pain.
    It is a fact of life that we all have different pain threshold and we handle situations differently. It does makes us better or worse, it makes us human.


    OH BTW I have 6 very different labours with very different pain levels. Some easier and less painful than others.
    I apologise if I offended you, I was talking about a completely different context and situation, as should have been obvious. Sorry to hear about your child, that must be horrible for them and of course no offense meant to you or them.

    Your second point was actually the EXACT point I was trying to make, that every labour is different so how can people compare. Perhaps the correct word is pain level and not pain threshold which I gather must be a medical term and I apologised if I used it wrongly. If you read my comment properly, what I said is that some people I have spoken to have used the term 'pain threshold' as an insult rather than accepting that somebody may have had a more painful birth. Hopefully you can understand that without the conversation going off track?

    I was induced twice and had 2 drug free births, most people don't know that I didn't have an epidural unless they ask. I don't feel the urge to. Yes I did feel empowered by being able to achieve that, but I also went in open minded to the possibility of having one if I felt I needed it. I believe no matter how we birth our children we shouldn't judge motherhood has its own challenges other than how our babies enter the world.
