Elective Cesarean Poster Child
As reported in USA Today:
"Spears, 23, says she doesn't know the baby's sex (but has a feeling it is a boy), and hopes to have a cesarean section. 'I don't want to go through the pain. My mom said giving birth was the most excruciating thing she's ever gone through in her life.'"
This from a woman with a pierced navel and breast implants (not to mention those rubber catsuits)? Careful what you wish for, Britney.
Seriously, it is so sad that this idol for many young women is saying "birth is so scary I'd rather get a Cesarean." This is what we're up against, birth community. Rock stars. When it's Britney Spears vs. Ina May Gaskin, I'm afraid we're not going to get much attention.
