No wonder women are fearful of birth. There are so many negative references to birthing, in the media. Latest one I noticed was an add for hair loss in women. Apparently hair loss can be caused by stressful and traumatic events such as childbirth! Who writes this stuff? Isn’t there anyone around who can point out that childbirth is not, has never been and should not be referred to as a stressful and traumatic event. The traumatic event, lies in the battle for women to surround themselves with positive and joyous references to birth and to trust their beautiful birthing bodies.
