There has been a lot of chatter about birth plans in the blogosphere. Expectant mothers dream about the idealized birth. Trouble is, labor and delivery can’t be planned. I have friends who wanted a natural birth and had a C-section. Some shunned drugs and then took them.
I knew I didn’t want to have surgery for my children to enter the world. I was open to everything else, including an epidural. I was induced both times and labored for a few hours. Thank goodness, I got my wish and didn’t have to have a C-section. If I had, I hope I wouldn’t be disappointed. I had two healthy babies. In the end that’s all that matters.
