My dear friend Brian spoke this nugget of truth on a car ride up to Maine this past summer. We had been discussing birth and out came this statement. I like to tease him, but he really is wise beyond his 26(for the last three birthdays, lol)years.
Women have received so much "help" giving birth recently, that we tend to forget that we instinctively know how to do it. I remember thinking prior to my first child being born, "Gosh I hope I do Ok. I hope I know how to push correctly." Well, assuming you aren't numb, it takes no more thought on how to push a baby out than it does to push a poop out!! You just do what your body tells you to do. It would serve us all well if we gave a little shout out to the cavewoman within us all.
