The Secret

There is a secret in our culture,

And it’s not that childbirth is painful,

It’s that women are strong.

-Laurie Stavoe Harm

Why are we so scared of pain? Why do we think we can not do it? Why do we believe we have a low threshold of pain in birth? Why have we bought the lie that we are weak? Why have we allowed birth to no longer be our journey that allows us to see our strengths? Why were the women before us able to handle it? What made them so different from us? Why do we see the pain of childbirth as being bad rather than good pain? Why are we so scared to see it as a challenge before us instead of something to run from?
