With all the talk of Prince George’s birth, and details emerging today about the birth being natural and without the use of painkillers, I’m reading lots of negative comments asking why the media are making a big deal about it being ‘natural’. It would be lovely to hear people being happy that Kate was able to have the birth she wanted, rather than making it into a “competition”, and it saddens me that a lot are missing the point – this was Kate’s pregnancy, and it’s HER birth story, and I for one, am happy that she was able to have the birth she wanted and worked hard to achieve.
I had 2 natural births with no pain relief or intervention. I also had an emergency caesarean with the works. All 3 were amazing in their own way. I guess I’m just saying that I wish we could all be happy for other Mums when we hear their stories, and not see it as “having a go” at Mum’s who may have had to go a different way than us.
