What is TED?

I think lots of people are frightened of birth because it really hurts, you have no control, no dignity and there is a chance you will rip open. Pretty frightening, I'd say.

I haven't watched it yet but I will. Instantly though when I saw the question my opinion is the only way to reduce fear is to increase choices and give women power over their own bodies.

Yes I had a section for the second one and it was so much better, it was amazing.

What's your perspective on this, OP?

I am absolutely petrified of the idea of giving birth and I'm not pregnant yet. This actually made me feel a bit calmer about it, thought it might help someone else.
