This. Is excellent. The author's conclusions are exactly right. We deserve ample opportunities to make rational pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting choices and receive encouragement toward those decisions, not romanticized or fear/shame-ridden lectures about "natural" or "unnatural" approaches and ridicule from one camp or another about whether we are drinking the KoolAid over what we favor. There is no such thing as "unnatural" or "unauthentic" labor or parenting. There is just whatever we do.
