"Giving birth is like making love in many ways. And I hope that by the time you finish reading this post, you look forward to your birth experience as much as you look forward to a romantic Friday night with your hot hubby ☺. AND, I hope you're ready to give birth like you make love!"
"Or are you like a third of mothers who are so petrified of giving birth that they liken it to experiencing a terrorist attack?"
"Giving birth is like really bad constipation, but eventually the poop comes out. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
A bad marathon seems like eternity."
"Giving birth is like a wedding... why focus so much on that ONE day.... the rest of life with that baby (aka the marriage) is what is really important."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
