The Childbirth Details Your Friends and Family Could Probably Do Without
Once you've endured childbirth, it may feel like your body (and all of its exceptional capabilities) are an open book. And while a few fellow mom friends — and perhaps your own mom — may be curious about every last detail of your labor and delivery, most would prefer that you spare them the gory details. So when those well-intended visitors show up with baby gifts and open arms, don't barrage them with your horror stories. When they ask how the delivery was, just smile and say, "(S)he's here safe and sound!"
(That said, this is all very tongue-in-cheek and aimed at your casual friend you meet up for coffee with from time to time, and finding the people you can talk about birth, postpartum struggles, and more with, is soooo important).
