Okay........ totally off the subject of stitching.......BUT!!
My 11 year old daughter would like to attend the birth of the new baby, I said that we would find some childbirth videos and she could watch those and see how she felt about it after that........
I am having a bit of trouble finding the videos so I have been looking for some on youtube....... now most of these videos are of american women giving birth and I have to admit.......... I'm appalled!!!! Is it expected in the US that women should give birth lying on their backs?!!! Pushing uphill?!!! Or is it just these few videos?................
And whats with all the cutting?!!!!! How the heck do they think it happened before doctors got involved?
I have had 4 children, as most of you know. The first I had leaning over the back of the bed.... the 2nd was in a deep squat holding on to one of those bars in a bathroom.... you know the ones older or disabled people have to help pull them up, the 3rd was standing/squating again holding onto the side of the bed!! The 4th was an elective c-section for breech presentation. I am hoping this one will be all natural again. I had no cutting and only a small tear that didn't require stitching with the 1st birth.......... I did not have small babies either! 8pounds 7 and a half ounces, 8 pounds 13 and a half ounces, 9 pounds ten ounces and 8 pounds 12 ounces!!
I would love to hear your thoughts and personal experiences and I promise I will be back to stitching discussion next time!!
