I know this one has been kinda done to death, but bear with me! lol
I was reading this article : http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/...
It's the usual kind of thing, women should have the right to have home births etc.
Then I read the comments below the article (that were far more interesting than the article itself! hahaha) and someone brought up the fact that saying a home birth is good for the baby because of the " calm, quiet, familiar surroundings" isn't really a good reason because NO-ONE remembers the circumstances they were born under.
The woman commenting said this : I would take issue with your idea that a traumatic birth would somehow have damaged your son. I didn't know my own birth details until a few months ago and I've led a fulfilled and happy life so far.
A few other people echoed her thoughts.
So what do you think?
