Labor already has a terrible reputation, so when Miranda Kerr said her natural, drug-free birth was so painful, she thought she was going to die, most people probably were not terribly surprised. And while I am sure it was intense (because duh), it does not do women any good to hear all the time how awful labor is.
It is not just to spare pregnant women, either. Our culture as a whole seems to have this idea that labor has to be terrible. We all have to curse and yell and scream and cry and eventually, even those of us who prepared for and planned a drug-free birth, will beg for the epidural.
It is simply not true. Now, I am well aware that I had textbook simple pregnancies and extremely easy labors, which makes me unable to comment on medical intervention.

Subtle subtext: I’m perfect, clever, beautiful, and pregnant. What really makes Kora magical, though, according to Kerr, is that “all of the water used in [Kora] mists have been infused with rose quartz crystals, and we’ve done that so that the vibration of love associated with rose quartz really flows through each product.” Aha! Love vibrations! That’s what my skin has been missing. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
