One of the members in our group made the transition from a mom-to-be to a mom last week. Everything seems to have gone smoothly (from what I can tell from her email), breastfeeding and all. So far, most of the women I have met experienced non-dramatic, non-traumatic childbirths. It feels good to know that a childbirth goes smoothly, no complications, no ER-type drama. Because, although it is interesting to listen to stories of Nightmare in the Delivery Room (as some people seem to be eager to share), it is encouraging and comforting to listen to stories of "uneventful, nothing to write home about" births. And I pray mine will be one.
