The Business of Being Born on Netflix. It talks about how doctors and hospitals will push you into doing what they feel comfortable with. Which is usually a fast medicated labor or surgery. Very interesting for all the mommies to be especially if you're on the fence about having a natural birth.

Loved it.
Had to have an emergency C-section though. :(

That's one of my biggest fears. I want a natural birth so badly.

I wanted a natural birth too. My mom is a trained doula and was going to be there for me and everything. But I had to have an emergency csection due to fetal distress.

Are you going to try for a natural this time? Hopefully I can do a natural birth. I will be at a hospital but my hospital is set up for natural births. They even have a birthing tub and I plan to labor at home as long as I can.

I'm going to try. If I need an epidural then I'm ok with that too. If I have to have another csection I will but I'm really hoping to avoid it.

Well I hope your birth goes as planned this time. :)
