This was linked on facebook by a local doula (just need to convince hubby to use one next pregnancy) and I liked the idea they were putting across about chance vs choice. Makes a lot of sense to me
Good article I thnk I shall share that one on FB!

Interesting article. It makes a good point.
Obviously, however, there is also an element of chance at work. It's probably just not as big a factor in most cases as most women seem to think.
big boy 12.8.07 @ 39+2 7lbs 8oz, 20.5" BFed for 13 months
middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and restarted at 30mo!
baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
8.16.12 & 12.16.12
The risk of chance in birth is probably like the risk of chance in bf'ing - ppl give it way more credit than it is due. It is hard to succeed if you feel the chance of failing is too high.
