Terror beyond belief

...that is natural childbirth....

Today is the third time I have witnessed these procedures and they are everything but beautiful. I would happily sit through 10 mastectomies over the expulsion of a child the size of a bowling ball through a hole the size of a golf ball.

Strangely, it is only this time that I felt the physical effects of shock and trauma. First came nausea, followed by the draining of blood from my peripherals. I literally felt the blood from my head drain away which left me cold, clammy, light headed and my vision faded.

Yes, people. I was close to keeling over and fainting. The horror!!

Kudos to all mothers who went through that nightmare of a procedure.
