Scary stories from a lovely place
Well, it would appear that people love birth stories. This has surprised me. I thought they would be too graphic. My post yesterday about my nephew Charlie’s birth as written by my sister was very popular. 125 people read it. Since I have been posting each day in March around 60 people have been reading each day. Before that I averaged anywhere between 20 and 40. Charlie spiked the stats! I enjoy reading them too, if they are interesting and not painfully long. Some I have read go on and on into a lot of detail. I knew that Jenny’s would be fine because she’s isn’t naturally a boring person and also she had such a fast labour there wasn’t much more to tell!
Here is a link to some other birth stories, some are good, some too long, some very sad, some with too much detail. But if you liked reading about Charlie’s birth, this might continue to sate your appetite. And you could also read Silas’ birth story, which I struggled to keep brief.
I read a pretty frightening article yesterday about birth injuries. I was going to provide the link but I have decided not to because it is awful. I am starting to feel nervous about my upcoming delivery in July and reading that article didn’t help matters. I am all for natural childbirth, but afterward I want as much pain relief and intervention as possible!
