There's something about childbirth that reveals a woman's strength. To have the strength and capacity to love to create and carry and then bring forth a child...wow.
I was just re-reading my own birth story. I remember reading tons of them while I was pregnant. I love learning from other experiences. Other than the Bradley method birthing book, birth stories were the most effective in preparing me for childbirth.
I just can't believe that I had the strength.
It's not about whether or not you used meds or if it was natural or a c-section...all of that really doesn't matter in the end. Having a baby makes you a strong, strong person. When I think about it, I'd rather just have Austin on the inside forever. There, no one can hurt him. Nothing can harm him. I am in complete control over his well-being. [Of course...God is the ULTIMATE authority...just saying.] You know what I mean?
I don't know if there was even a point to write this post. I just read my birth story and felt STRONG.
