No point in planning for your birth, no point, no point at all!
You’ll only be disappointed when all your plans do fall.
No point in lowering your expectations, which are far too high,
Better to have none at all, and to not even try.
Defeated from the very first, your dignity at the door,
You matter not at all, my dear, of that we are sure.
We will encourage you to train and to do your very best!
If you want to run a marathon, we’ll cheer you and support you on your quest!
But when it comes to birthing, you’ll be told meh! whatever,
it’s all too unpredictable, so planning – never!
And so without a paddle, up the creek you go,
All in the name of “going with the flow”.
