  •  Sounds like your baby got it back in 1974. :-\ (4+ / 0-)

    Lord what a horrible experience for you. I hope you recovered. Sometimes we are so barbaric, you know? 1974 was not 1874.

    And babies - they are greedy little parasites and you're the host.

    •  Fortunately my baby girl (9+ / 0-)

      came out fine and is the mother of two wonderful boys. It was quite an awful time for me, tho. The whole birthing experience was changing and older OBGYNs hated it.

      They let mr.uintas in the room to see her be born but tied my hands to the table! He was able to touch her but they wouldn't let me. They knocked me out the minute she was born and when I came to I was telling mr.u exactly how to get to Pennsylvania from Washington DC thru West Virginia and Maryland. Go figure.

      •  I am so angry reading about your experience! (5+ / 0-)

        How barbaric. I was a Bradley mom, and feel very fortunate that I learned of that childbirth method and found a teacher and had a nice family practitioner and hospital that didn't hassle me too much about it (although I was prepared to fight back, and had to when I had my second in a different city).

        Above all I feel lucky to have had two completely complication-free pregnancies and births.  Even with "easy" births, I never felt closer to death than during labor. The whole biological aspect of pregnancy and birth is really amazing and scary. The whole "child is a gift from God" thing (we have awful fundamentalist anti-choice billboards around my city) makes me so mad. Yeah, that's what the patriarchs say! It's the hardest "gift" any woman worked to get, even when she wants it!
