Birth is Raw



So many apologizing in birth.

Apologizing for their noise,
their (normal) urge to poop,
their needs for comfort,
and the list goes on.

I think one reason our culture apologizes in birth is because we show birth heavily edited in mainstream media, we cut clips and overshadow labor noise with songs and blur things that might make viewers squirm.

Birth is raw, primal and powerful, but it is not always graceful. Let’s stop apologizing for doing what we were built to do, okay? 🙏
