Day 19 (Thursday). Let us in on something your passionate about. Go ahead and rant a little bit. Something such as an event, special cause, a pet peeve, someone who makes you mad.)
One thing I am really passionate about is not being judgmental about people and it drives me crazy when people judge things that they don’t understand completely or don’t really know anything about. That’s why although there are topics for this question that I could have written about those are my personal feelings for me and I don’t want anyone thinking that I judge others who don’t believe in or follow the same path that I do.
Such as I was very passionate about having a non medicated birth. It makes me crazy when I read negative things about women who choose to give birth the way I did. They assume my reasons behind it and how I feel about mothers who make different choices. I don’t believe all births should be non medicated and I believe and understand it is a personal choice. I think that my birth was a beautiful thing and it was the best choice for me and my baby. I didn’t do it for some anti medication or because I’m some martyr or natural person who wanted to prove how great a mother I am . I did it to be perfectly honest, because I’m terrified of needles and I was not letting them stick a big huge one in my back. So it bothers me when I see people who judge women who have unmedicated births as thinking they are better than other mothers. /that or make the assumption that I some how think less of women who have an epidural or need a C-section because I don’t. I’m proud of my delivery because it was what I wanted and it worked for me. So actually I’m being judged because people think I’m some martyr who judges others when the truth is I’m just a big wimp.
My sister needed an epidural and I supported her, she didn’t want to because she wanted a labor like mine but I had a quick easy labor and it worked that way. After trying for a long time and hitting her breaking point she needed an epidural and eventually a c-section for my neice who wasn’t going to come out any other way. I supported that, I wanted to meet my niece I didn’t care how. I didn’t think an epidural was harmful I just didn’t need it. If my labor had gone differently, I might have had to rethink my decision. Either way it was my birth and my choice that was what matters. Getting a healthy baby delivered safely into the world.
Thanks for letting me vent, what do you need to vent about today. Go ahead.
