Natural childbirth should give you some street cred... (#natural childbirth)

Motherhood has reinforced my admiration for mothers, including my own. I know that women have been raising children for centuries, but my God , it is hard work! And let’s not discuss how babies are born. Childbirth is a bitch! Of course I had heard that it was hard before I experienced myself. However, I truly had no idea what it would be like until it was my time. My mother had three children without medication. Before I had my baby she failed to share one critical piece of information. It is VERY, VERY hard! Quite frankly, had I known that natural child birth would test my strength and resolve so much, I may have opted for general anesthesia —forget the epidural. Hell, I may have turned back if I could have.
