I'm starting to think...

... that PO has made me crunchy! ROFL

My first pregnancy I was: planning to formula feed, disposable diaper, didn't know what baby-wearing was, would totally have circ'ed my kid without a second thought, and had no qualms about inducing and using as many drugs as possible, and didn't know what a doula was.

This, my third pregnancy, I'm: planning to breast feed, cloth diaper, baby wear, anti-circ, considering a doula, planning to encapsulate my placenta, want to go into labor on my own for once, and am seriously considering trying to go drug and intervention free for the first time.

WTH happened???? ROFL!!

It happened to me as well Biggrin Mine was a gut feeling that what I had done with my first wasn't the way it should be done and then searching out more information. It's hard to describe but the more I get into natural birth the more crunchy I become. My friends IRL can't believe the transformation over the years because knowing me you'd figure I'd be as far from crunchy as possible. Now it's natural (organic when possible) foods and all the things you mentioned LOL

I think it happens to us all! And it's because the "norm" seems to be as much medical intervention as possible - but I think that's shifting once again as more women educate themselves.

My goodness! Imagine if we went through life and never changed our opinions on things. I'm all for growing through new experiences. Smile ("learn something new every day!")

I don't know if it's actually converted me! haha It's definitely opened my eyes to a lot of things I wasn't aware of, though!
