Birth will change your life, whether you like it or not! I want this forum to be a safe place where people can feel free to share their good, bad, and fantastic birth stories.
Birth stories need to be listened to without judgment…
Just as every woman is different, every birth story is different and we don’t do ourselves any favors judging people for the choices they made (or didn’t make) during birth. Believe me, I think women are the hardest on themselves! Sharing birth stories should be both empowering and healing. I think women who have had negative experiences should share their stories to help them process what happened. I also think that women should share their empowering birth stories with others without fear of making women with negative ones feel bad. Women have been taught to be terrified of birth and we need to share with others how amazing it can be.
