Oh girl I feel you. My midwife and I are pretty close, so I'm excited to see her. Part of why I won't UC is because I want her at my birth.

It's true across a large random sample, probably more true for people of lower socio-economic status. I would think mostly to do with nutrition and prenatals, really. It probably makes the baby more tangible for people.
