I met a woman a few weeks ago who had a dramatic birthing experience. This is her first child and the birth was not the way she wanted- natural with no medical intervention. Instead, she had a typical hospital birth including drugs and timed for the doctor's convenience.  Now she is suffering severe postpartum depression because she was unaware that she had choices- even in a hospital setting. It broke my heart and made me want to instantly be her friend and sister in motherhood.
