Tell me after I deliver

What felt good to Georgia was to know that she got to create her own experience of pregnancy and delivery – especially delivery. When she was pregnant she noticed that many women wanted to tell her their labor and delivery stories. Georgia decided that she didn’t want to hear them!

She didn’t want to “take on” aspects of other people’s deliveries. She wanted to create her own. Now, Georgia is a loving, caring, polite person. It sometimes felt uncomfortable for her to stop the conversation when women started sharing. Women seemed surprised or shut down by her request to wait to tell her their stories about delivery until after she experienced her own delivery.

I can imagine being geared up to share my personal story and feeling let down or even annoyed that someone wasn’t willing to listen to it. Yet, I wholeheartedly applaud Georgia’s intentionality and willingness to make the “tell me later” request repeatedly even though it would potentially frustrate others.

How did you make sure that you were doing your pregnancy and delivery YOUR way?
