      @MidnightSM93 I had a midwife and I do not regret it. It was a lot more comforting every sense than other types

      I have a child. I think everyone is scared of it and it's perfectly natural to be, so much could go wrong and literally everything is outside of your control... that's scary. It was really weird but I also loved being pregnant. My birth was crazy without gross details it was intense and quick and exhausting. I had to give birth in the hospital because I qad too anxious about what could go wrong outside of the hospital. Being a parent isn't for everyone and that's perfectly fine. Any of yall are welcome to ask question as I see most comment are people scared who haven't gone through it

      Weirdly, pregnancy more than childbirth. I've been following natural, birth positive accounts for a while now and that has really helped me. Pregnancy I don't look forward to due to the sensory issues and discomfort. Birth really can't last more than 48 hrs, so that seems less endless to me. And I know a lot of things that I will do to make myself feel safe and comfortable during birth.

        @Artemish the book super freakonomics bas a section with statistics proving midwives know what they do better and have way higher success and lower failure rates. Dem baths tho 👌

      omg yes. and just the idea of being pregnant in general. i’m only 18 LOL but the idea of being pregnant has freaked me out since i really learned about it. to me it makes me imagine a weird alien being stuck to my insides that just sits for 9 months sucking up my energy. also with childbirth i get weirded out thinking about how painful that would be 😭😭 and the hormones that come with being pregnant?! i think instead of kids i’ll just have a ton of cats.

      Pregnancy and childbirth as a whole, yes. Part of the reason I decided not to have children.
