Pregnancy Choices And The Mean Girl Syndrome

But why does it have to be this way? Why do pregnant women gird their loins for battle when it comes to breastfeeding, induction, voluntary c-sections and the like? Do you honestly think you’re on a mission to save my baby from me and my decisions? That’s just silly. Why can’t we just live and let live? Certainly, if I told you I was drinking a few fingers of bourbon each night while pregnant you could give me The Business. But why the hoopla over a doctor-approved glass of wine on Friday night? Why such negativity? Or drama?
It's what I'm babbling about today.
