So, I now know why I don't want to allow anonymous comments. I just got an awful one. Here it is...I will edit the cuss word.
"You are a crazy b****. You've been around just a few births and read some books and you act like you know more than the professionals who have had years of schooling and experience. Just because a woman doesn't give birth your way doesn't mean she's doing it wrong. Get off your damn soap box! "
My feelings are pretty hurt but I will try to tell myself that that is the comment of some angry blog troll just looking to say something mean to a doula. I find it funny that the criticism does not match my last post to which they were referring. I wrote about birth #2 and was talking about how it was a wonderful experience and how I loved being there. I did not mention anyone birthing in any kind of "wrong" way.
I talked about my worry about cord traction which any medical professional should know is not safe when the placenta is still attached..it can cause hemorrhage or even uterine prolapse.
Deep breath in...deep breath out....so much hate out there. Man, I don't go on people's blogs, call them out, cuss at them and hide behind the name "anonymous".
Can I get some love from all of you who don't think I am a "crazy B****" ? Thanks to all the people who love me.
The best teachers...
