    I wonder why it's still such a struggle though

    You'd think that evolution would have made giving birth easy and stuff, no?

    This is a question for the ladies.

    When did you come to terms with the fact that if you ever what kids of your own you are going to have to carry a parasite for 9 months and then squeeze something far to large out a hole far to small. It;s terrifying, like how do you even come to terms with that :afraid:

    Almost makes deing sooner as a man worth it that I don;t have to worry about that
    I like a good stretch

    Birth in humans is harder than in other species because of our large brains and upright posture.

    For the majority of the animal kingdom birth is relatively dlstraightforward and pain free unless there are complications.

    In answer to the Op it's actually very difficult.to deal with and the main reason why being a woman socks.

    It's all part of being a mother, personally I'd embrace it because at the end of it all I'd have a little baby of my own in my arms.:love:

    What exactly about childbirth and motherhood is so amazing? I'm not being mean, I just genuinely don't uderstand. To me it's the worst thing that can happen to a person. Why do so many people enjoy the idea of having children?

    that's because of procedures like Episiotomies... which aren't fine or dandy themselves.

    Different people want different things. To some people watching their child grown and teaching it things is wonderful. They're people who can look past the negatives because they believe the positives outweigh the negatives involved...not me though.

    I used to find it disgusting and terrifying; I thought of it as a parasite. Then I warmed to the idea - you're hosting a life; something that's half of you and all yours to raise and watch grow and that's kind of beautiful.

    Describing them as "parasites", you've got a very very weird logic.
    I got that from when someone I follow on twitter compared carrying a child to the alien chest buster in Alien XD.

    It;s something that lives inside of you and feeds off of you :afraid:

    Parasite.
