One week at obstetrics. The one week solely in the labour room.

My conclusion on labour / bearing down? It may be a beautiful process after, but it certainly is PAINFUL to the utmost. If can, no one would wanna go through the pain.

The "bundle of joy" definitely comes with a heavy price, a heavy sacrifice. 9 months (i even ter-type weeks!) "parasite"-ing in the mother's womb, hours (sometimes days) of trying to push when one is exhausted...

But if you get the "end product" - alive, crying and kicking although quiet ones are cuter!; sometimes coo-ing at you and looking wide eyed at the world...

The childlike innocence.

And the family's joy.

Perhaps it makes everything worth it.
