Tilda Swinton Says That Giving Birth Is “Murderous” Business

“In movies, and particularly in television films, when people have babies they are sitting in a hospital room and there are flowers everywhere. They are made up, magically, and they have a baby in their arms and it’s all really lovely. They start getting pink baby clothes… [Giving birth is] a truly, truly murderous business. It’s violent. And if one doesn’t embrace that, if one can’t embrace it — and it’s really tough to do that — then you’re up a gum tree because it means you’re going to be cutting off a whole part of yourself.”

Tilda Swinton, who has teenage twins, wants to make sure we know that childbirth isn’t all rattles and itty bitty sneakers. Is anyone else out there terrified by this quote? Moms out there, please weigh in on whether your experience matches up with hers. I’m hoping not. [Telegraph UK]
