Things You Shouldn’t Say to a Pregnant Woman

I saw this post today by Melissa, she was talking about things she doesn’t like to hear from women who are planning a natural childbirth. She really hit the nail on the head with her description of college graduation:

“Would you tell someone that you?re going to ?try? to graduate from high school or that you ARE going to graduate in four years? It?s going to take a lot of time and hard work, but you ARE going to graduate in four years, there is no doubt. What if someone actually asked you, ?Oh, are you going to try to graduate?? You?d be furious because it implies that you are likely to fail.”

I really like this analogy.? I often try to convey this to women both in class, clients and just people I meet.? My simple statement of “Have a little faith…” hopefully makes the difference sometimes. So remember, stand up with your fellow sisters and give them support!
