I decided a long time ago that any children I have, I would either deliver at home or at a birth center, given that I had a normal pregnancy. No pain-killers, no inducing, NO C-SECTION! I know, I know...everybody says that.
I think as a women, it's something that I want to experience completely sober and aware. I want to feel all of the changes and everything that's going on during one of the most important days of my (and my baby's) life.
Now that I am pregnant, I had to convince Simeon that it wasn't some weird thing that only hippies do. Well, that was really tough. Until I made him watch this video with me:)
He went from being totally against having a baby at a birth center to supporting it. And when I say he was totally against it, I mean he gave me no other option but to have our baby at the hospital (not that it was his decision ;) ).
Even if you are planning on giving birth at the hospital, I would definitely recommend watching this video. In no way am I saying that giving birth in the hospital is wrong, I hate when people judge me for making decisions they don't think are right, so I would never judge anyone with their opinion...this is just mine :)
