Too Cool For School...Er, I mean Hospitals
Some people are gonna say that I dont have the right to an opinion because I dont have kids yet and am not a mom but truthfully, I dont give a shit & Im gonna say it anyway...
What the fuck is up with all this midwife, birth plan & birthing center talk I've been seeing around the blogosphere lately?
I don't know if people are aware but we're not living in the 1800's anymore, we have doctors, great one's at that, and these big buildings we named 'hospitals' where you can give birth to your child and they have all sorts of instruments that are life saving, should you need them.
As for birth plans, I'm lucky if I can get my dinner plans to go as scheduled. You wanna know what my plan is going to be when I'm about to pop out a tiny human from of my who-ha?
I'm keeping it simple: Get it out of me asap.
To each their own, right? Sure. I've read the upside/downsides of all of them, yeah I did my research & googled that shit a few minutes ago & I'll respect whatever you choose to go with but it doesn't mean I 'get it'. Not that I have to.
I'm saying it right now though, I will have my future children in hospitals with doctors & RN's around, I will not be playing calming music in the background because it would just aggravating me more, I will most likely be cursing & asking for an epidural and I will no way in hell ever become one of those yuppie 'I only breastfeed, put cloth diapers on my child's precious ass, and douse them in sanitizer' kind of moms.
I'm calling it right now, my kid's gonna be that healthy but filthy little shit playing in the mud puddle out back.
