Would also be nice to see childbirth treated as something natural rather
than a medical disaster waiting to happen –

and removing it from hospitals where too often women have been treated as

Pretty much forced to participate, didn’t like it but couldn’t quit, knew there was something morally wrong, and couldn’t wait to get away from it.
