Any adult females still think that not only is giving birth scary, but absolutely disgusting and embarrassing?(r/TwoXChromosomes)

This makes me really sad. I know there are women out there who never want to give birth, and more power to them. The world would be a better place if people who didn’t want to becomes parents stay child free.

But for those who do want to have children one day, our society has bombarded us with all the goriest horror stories because they make catchy headlines.

Part of the problem is that birth has become synonymous with laying on your back in a hospital, possibly the worst position you could be in. You’re fighting gravity which can cause tearing and undue pain. Plus, being spread out in front of strangers does cause most people to feel some modesty, and for many women, just as most mammals, there is an intense desire to find a small quiet place to give birth. Call it a left over survival instinct.

If you or anyone reading this is scared of child birth but does wish to have a biological child, I’d encourage you to read Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth or watch Pregnant in America or the Business of Being Born (both streaming on Netflix), to hear another side of birth.
