My post on The Face of Birth received a range of comments - some embracing the film and my discussion, other dismissing it and accusing me of judgement.
I've thought long and hard about those comments and how I should receive them.
Us mothers, we are fierce. When it comes to birth and our experiences we fight for what we believe. Indeed, the mere mention of 'birth' stirs the fire within us. And thank goodness it does. It signifies our journey into motherhood - if we didn't have so much passion and energy how on earth would we raise our children?
I will never stop discussing birth on my blog because it is something I am deeply passionate about. My own birth experiences have inspired me, teaching over 400 pregnant women over the past few years has encouraged a compassion within me that I never knew before.
I write as a mother, a pre-natal yoga teacher and a journalist. My discussions are never objective, but they are informed. I hope to inspire, I never ever intend to judge.
