... had a cesarean. sigh I thought for sure, if anyone had a natural birth, it would be Ms. Jolie. I am so disappointed and even more disappointed that she shipped in an LA obstetrician for the birth in a tiny clinic. Why oh why didn't she have a midwife? Why didn't she birth her baby vaginally? I've read in some places that her daughter was breech, but still. sigh
How does natural birth ever have a hope if the most masochistic actress on the face of the planet succumbs to the pressure to birth cesarean. How much hope does anyone else have? Why oh why can't someone have a spectacular, filmed, beautiful, quiet, peaceful homebirth and share it with the world of television? Why does the "alternative" to homebirth have to be Shari Daniel's birth center in Miami? blech Why don't baby shows show what many of us know to be true? How come I can't interest any number of producers (that I personally know) to do a segment/show on natural homebirth? Why does birth have to be extremely dramatized to make it interesting? Why isn't the drama of a child slipping earthside enough?
Will those that scoff at us ever get it?
