Yes, and yes! I have had the honor of giving birth, so yes, I know what it is like personally.
Though I chose natural births for myself because I believe God designed a woman’s body perfectly for birth, I will support you in whatever decisions you make for your own birth – completely natural, epidural, pain medications, water birth, scheduled cesarean birth, etc. I will not press or pressure you with my personal opinions. Rather, I will encourage you to choose what you feel is best for you.
