Natural labor? Pain meds in the parking lot? Home birth? On Momversation, Daphne of Cool Mom wonders why mothers judge each other over their birth choices. What’s up with that? And is birth choice really a choice? For me, it was more like hanging onto the reins of a runaway horse.
Here’s who’s talking:
- Rebecca Woolf of Girl’s Gone Child
- Daphne Brogdon of Cool Mom
- Mindy Roberts of The Mommy Blog
- and me.
Keep talking in the comments of the episode post or on the Momversation forums. Two conversations are underway: Is it important for mothers to experience natural childbirth? (I’ve got much more to say about this topic — I plan to join in later today) and Should I get a doula?
I love you, but I hate your politics!
Are online friends as important as your real-life friends?
Disagreeing with your partner’s parenting decisions (this is one of my favorite episodes so far — Alice Bradley (Finslippy) is a natural comic)
