I think I’m a little late to this party, but I felt my heart doing some added pitter pattering when I heard about the situation with Mila Kunis and her epidural comment on Ellen’s show.
So Mila Kunis wants to have an all natural birth and made the comment, “I did this to myself, might as well do it right” just after Ellen asked if she was going to have an epidural at all.
I’ve gone ahead and included the video below so you can see it for yourself.
So why was I completely annoyed? We live in a country where “freedom of speech” is very much appreciated. Sadly though, it always seems to come so much judgment. The more we exercise our freedom of speech, the more we get criticized for it.
It amazes me that even her comment could be judged the way it has! Apparently, this was made into a deal bigger than it should have been, where there were some who were outraged by it.
Did you hear how innocent she was about it? Surely she didn’t realize she was going to offend anyone.
I can’t speak for everyone, but what in the world do we need to be so caddy about? There are millions of women who have had natural births and surely have made remarks and probably look down at those who haven’t had them.
I for one have ZERO tolerance for pain and was not about to go all natural no matter what amount of money you gave me. In fact, I started freaking out about the whole thing just a little after 6 months of pregnancy. Do I love my son any less because of it? Is he going to love me any less? Am I bummed I didn’t go through the horrible pain? Absolutely not. I went through a c-section that caused my intestines and my whole abdomen to jiggle for at least 2 months, but I honestly would do it again if I had to just to avoid the other pain.
More power to the women who are strong enough to go through the all natural birth process. It is, I’m sure, a feeling that will never be forgotten.
