Your body is not a lemon.
You are not a machine.
The Creator is not a careless mechanic.
Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo.
Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body.
