I 100% totally agree with that. I'm in no way sexist, but a man is completely unable to totally understand what a women goes through in child birth. He will never know. But a midwife, she knows. I've had both and I definitely prefer a female midwife who understands. Just my opinion. I know I care a lot more about all those hippie feelings than most women, but for me, it matters. And nothing can ever replace an understanding, loving midwife.
PS. I love Ina May! :)
