I find this sad

Beyoncé Knowles (Mrs. Jay-Z, now, I guess — I’m not that much into pop culture!) is scared of having a baby. She says that seeing her nephew be born terrified her. I wonder what the circumstances of that was. I can imagine what she saw may have been more like this or this, rather than this or this. Or perhaps she saw her sister being treated like a child, or her wishes ignored, or people in her face screaming at her to push harder or better or longer, or needing oxygen at the end (because of having purple pushed until her baby was having trouble from the lack of oxygen). Maybe it was just the whole tense environment of far too many hospital births that “it was only normal in retrospect”, and until the baby is born and declared alive and well, the doctor and all the nurses have an attitude of expecting something to go wrong at every second.
