Ouch!

I have to congratulate a neighbour of mine who recently gave birth to a 9,5 pound baby… at home! No epidural, no pain killer of any sort, a completely natural birth.

True, I had a completely natural birth too, but my baby weighed a mere 7 pounds and it was already more painful than anything I could have imagined. Her baby was a third bigger than mine!

I know, you don’t want to picture that either. I just wanted to tip my hat to her. And hope it never happens to me!

    On se remet beaucoup plus vite d’un accouchement naturel, par contre. Je dois dire que malgré l’énorme douleur (et j’en ai eu des flashbacks en masse la première nuit), je ne regrette pas du tout et je referais tout exactement de la même façon. Pas que j’aie eu le choix, remarque, à la vitesse à laquelle ça s’est passé!
