Beautiful birth story (not mine)

I found this story very moving and appreciated the emphasis on what I believe is most important – life. One can only plan a birth so much. I believe a woman should feel empowered, safe and protected. But I don’t believe that birth defines who or what a woman is. I don’t believe that giving birth a certain way entitles anyone to a badge of honor. Getting it out is an incredible accomplishment in my book – however it is done.

This was a beautiful story. Shortly after my daughter's birth, the hospital where I had her lost a baby during a VBAC b/c of a rupture. My heart broke for the mother, and even though it is very rare,
i felt a flash of intense gratitude for my c-section. I'm just so glad to have a healthy baby.
