This really rubs me the wrong way

Ashton • Mommy of 3 little boys.
I hate shit like this that gets posted all over the Internet. It spreads the notion that unmedicated birth is something that is some macho feat that is unattainable or even crazy! It's not crazy! Medically unnecessary procedures that increase risk to mom and baby shouldn't be hailed as the "sane" choice. I don't have anything against those that choose medicated births. You are still a badass. For real. My problem is that we have an abnormally high amount of intervention in the US because we are taught that the pain is so unbearable that we couldn't possibly handle it, and those that do are somehow superhuman.
