Quotes for my week

"We have a secret in this culture and it's not that birth is painful. It's that women are strong." - Laura Stavoe Harm

"The first intervention in natural childbirth is the one that a healthy woman does herself when she walks out the front door of her own home in labor. It is from that first intervention that all others follow." - Michael Rosenthal, OB/GYN

My "ignore other people's birth horror stories" quote:
"People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar." -Thich Nhat Hanh
