That's La France, taking care of even the smallest...er...not quite, but certainly giving excellent medical care for citizens and others. I had to use the French medical system on a visit, and can only rave about the care and cost. I think any American who uses that system is amazed and pleased, but I know that many other European countries, i.e., the Scandanavian countries, Germany, and others are excellent. Forgive me if I add, they're socialist systems. I enjoyed the article, I could have done without the cutesy names for vagina.

this made me laugh to tears. and i didn't pee even a little bit. my baby is now nearly two. sneezing, on the other hand, is a different issue...

no, the post pregnant body is not something they seem to care much about around here other than the, in passing, "do kegels". just think of the poor women who hardly have a maternity leave to speak of. nearly two years in and my body still feels like it isn't totally back in my control.

not sure how i would feel with the hooHa "re-education", but knowing it is so helpful would maybe be enough encouragement to give it a whirl.

Funny in that american in paris kind of way and again says something about how different Europe is from America as far as cultural values. They have them!

Your comment helps to make her point...

Perhaps, but you're still not going to bait me in to finishing the article. I presume her point was made and if it is up for debate you'll get none from me.

The best thing about this article was the number of words the writer managed to use in place of "vagina". "Shnush" was my favorite!

I know it's a cultural thing, but I really get sick of people (women in particular) making everything so dramatic. I gave birth to 2 healthy children, got back to my original weight in 2 months and I didn't breastfeed. I noticed nothing new about my body once everything healed. This article is boring, and I don't know why everyone today feels the need to explicitly describe everything. Childbirth is just a natural, biological phenomenon that's been going on forever. Boring!

I can't agree with your assessment of the article. Where was the "drama"? I think it was an interesting account of how another country promotes the health and well-being of its citizens. And the writer used humor to tell her story---a story that might inspire women to learn how to tune up a part of their body they probably tend to neglect...

Congratulations on being a small percentage of women who do not suffer from post-partum complications.

Your comment is ironically dramatically boring itself, what with a single-worded exclamation to emphasise nothing in particular.
