Spears Fuels Slice-And-Dice Delivery Procedure Among Women

CARLSBAD, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – While Brooke Shields had become the celebrity poster child for post-partum depression, Britney Spears has become a similar beacon for Lockiophobia – or fear of child birth – and one childbirth educator and author doesn’t think it’s such a good thing.

Sheri Menelli, who penned the book, Journey Into Motherhood: Inspirational Stories of Natural Birth (White Heart Publishing,) a collection of 48 natural birth stories, says Spears has unwittingly helped fuel the elective Cesarean delivery craze among pregnant women, which is now estimated at 30 percent in the U.S.

In her words, “Many expecting women including Britney think having a C-section is less painful, but it’s really the opposite. For one thing, the recovery time is so much longer.”

However, Menelli believes Mrs. Federline’s delivery method revelation may also have a positive effect on current or potential bun in the oven carriers.

She figures the increased attention on the slice and dice procedure will make women realize why vaginal birth is so much better: Less scars, shorter recovery time and a greater sense of connection with the baby.
