"We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful; it's that women are strong." — Laura Stavoe Harm

So many times women go it to labor with the attitude that they cannot do this. They will walk through the doors of L&D demanding pain medication as soon as possible without giving themselves the option of learning new birthing techniques that will lesson the pains of labor. Every woman looks at labor as a painful process and don't get me wrong I am all for avoiding pain if it is possible, but after having three drug free births. I am also able to see the other side of delivering babies. I am able to see the side that makes women strong and courageous, the side that makes us get to the point where we are screaming that we cannot do this anymore but we are able to. We focus, we gain hope and strength from that deep dark place within our soul that only comes out to lend a hand when we need it most. So many times women feel the pain and shut down, they want pain medication and they want them now, like I said I understand that all to well. Been there done that, but I pushed through. If you want to experience what it is to become a stronger more capable feeling woman look into alternative birthing techniques and pain management. You will discover more about yourself and what you are capable of doing in the process.

Good word. I think we're stronger in a lot of ways, more than we think. Joining the Army has taught me that!
