…I do not want to hear your story of how painful the birth was…or watch a documentary on it. I do not want to hear about c-sections, episiotomies, cephallic or breech babies, last minute labour issues or why they induced you despite your begging them not to. As fascinating as it might sound, I don’t want to hear what happened to your friend when she took the epidural or the other friend, when she didn’t. I am not dying to hear of how much tearing, pain, blood sweat and screams it takes to push a person out into the world. I don’t want to discuss the issues of post birth trauma or post partum depression. At this point of week 34, I don’t “need” to know the realities of anything. I. am. happy. in. my. denial. la la land. Promise.
