Is it just me or does Jordin Spark’s birth not sound “scary” at all but rather, sounds like it was wonderful…. Not sure why you guys are contributing to the idea of birth being something to be afraid or, or the idea that the cord wrapped around the babies neck is immediately something to fear, when in reality, it’s a very common occurence, rarely causing any problems at all.
