"Almost every stage of obstetrical procedure in the hospital is part of the mechanism that enables the doctor to create his own pathology."---Robert Mendelsohn M.D

"PARENTS, think about this ~~ Ultrasound is used to open the Blood brain barrier in brain cancer treatment. Now listen up, PREGNANT women often get ultrasounds AND are encouraged to get vaccines during pregnancy. This means that Baby's BBB is being put at serious risk, even before birth. Solution: Ultrasound is not as safe as we are led to believe, and vaccines during pregnancy are never safe. Avoid both." ~ Donna Voetee

 Every single hospital birth protocol undermines the capacity for mother, father, and child to bond. Damaging technological interventions disrupt the production of natural oxytocin, and these include (but are not limited to) induction, amniotomy, fetal heart monitors (especially the internal ones that are literally SCREWED into the baby’s skull), the use of cytotec, pitocin, demerol (or any drugs whatsoever) during labor or immediately after birth, c-section, the unnecessary, sadistic, and violent clamping and cutting of the umbilical cord, the theft of infant cord blood, oral suctioning, putting ointment in the baby’s eyes so that his/her eyes burn and he/she cannot make eye contact with his/her parents, infant swaddling (which prevents skin-to-skin contact, restricts all movement, and causes baby to go into parasympathetic shock), highly toxic vaccinations immediately after birth, so-called vitamin k shots, separating mother and child for any length of time during the first hour after birth, neonatal intensive care unit (which are brutal), circumcision, and the list goes on.[2013] OXYTOCIN, HUMAN LOVE, AND HUMAN BONDING by Jeanice Barcelo

  1. Petocin is used to induce the delivery prematurely (for doctor's convenience and golf schedule).
  2. The petocin causes exaggerated unnatural pain.
  3. An epidural is needed to reduce the agonizing pain caused by the unnecessary pharmaceutical that was previously administered.
  4. The epidural then impairs the delivery, so even more petocin is given.
  5. The double dose of petocin causes contractions to be much more severe, and last for longer periods of time.
  6. This combination begin compromising the oxygen and blood flow to the baby.
  7. Women are placed on their backs, in the legs-in-stirrups position, making labor even more difficult for both mothers and babies, but it is more convenient for the doctors.
  8. As the baby is increasingly harmed by all of these things, sometimes an emergency C-section becomes necessary.
  9. When it is finally over, the doctors then applaud themselves concerning how great their interventions were at saving a child who would have never been in danger in the first place without their "help". Why Americans Ought To Reevaluate What They Were (Falsely) Taught about Child Birth

The Midwife Is In · It is vital to remember that gynecology was invented by a torturing slave owner and that the instruments and tools of gynecology reflect that. [look up Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey, the slaves he experimented on] The exam table is a method of dehumanizing patients, taking everything out of the view of the provider except for the vulva and vagina. The process of using stirrups takes power and strength away from the patient, making them feel like they're falling off the table and focusing on trying to stay afloat rather than recognizing what is being done to them and deciding whether or not they consent to the exam. @feministmidwife first started talking publicly about not using stirrups a few years back and I credit her with the shift in practice that is slowly, glacially happening. 
Research re-confirms what we know - pelvic exams only help in specific situations. We don't need to "take a look and make sure everything is ok" we don't need to "just check" in the vagina. Speculum and bimanual exams are only needed for very specific scenarios and using them for other reasons is abusive. I take pride in bringing conscientiousness, respect for individuality, an attempt at anti-racism, anti-classism, a broader understanding of gender, and a general love for my patients to my practice.

Insurance companies often refuse to cover home births, because supporting the alternatives would eventually eliminate our need for their health insurance. In other words, the American medical system's prices are kept artificially high, so that customers are forced to buy insurance, which has policies ensuring that medical prices continue being high for the sake of perpetuating its own wealth-generating existence. Insurance companies have an incestuous relationship with the medial establishment, and neither would support anything that might decrease our dependence upon them, or decrease cost. Insurance agents have a tendency to seek only advice from in-system doctors, who predictably claim that home births are dangerous. The statistical evidence overwhelmingly proves the opposite. For example, America has the most births performed in hospitals, but it has the highest infant mortality rate in the industrialized world. Statistics prove that the more medical care a child receives, the more likely he is to die.

Allopathic Birthing History In All Its Shining Glory
In the 1930's, X-rays were used on pregnant women. It was later discovered that these gave the unborn children cancers, and the practice was stopped.
2.  In the 1940's through the 1960's, morphine and scopolamine were administered successively to induce "Twilight Sleep". It was believed that this would change the experience of labor forever, by eradicating pain. It merely produced amnesia afterward, so that mothers had no recollection of the traumatic events, and the drug furthermore caused women to lose self-control. Women were routinely placed in straight jackets and strapped down to beds, in order to stop them from hurting themselves. It was common for doctors to leave the new mothers strapped to beds during the drug-induced psychoses, screaming in terror for hours at a time -- sometimes laying in their own feces and urine.
3.  In the 1960's, the drug thalidomide was given to pregnant women, which resulted in infants who were born without arms and legs, and others with more random deformities. Thus, it too was eventually stopped.
4. In the early 1990's, Cytotec (misoprostol) was used to induce labor in women who previously had C-sections. This resulted in thousands of women with ruptured uteruses. This practice was abandoned in 1999, and the drug is now used for abortions. Why Americans Ought To Reevaluate What They Were (Falsely) Taught about Child Birth

They are expelled rather roughly and usually taken away from their mother, which is wrong. It's physiologically/psychologically wrong. Both baby and mother need each other more at that time than they ever will again. The baby should be put to nurse at his mother's breast whereupon it induces an enormous number of wonderful changes in the mother, such as an arresting of the postpartum hemorrhage, which no obstetrician can do under the circumstances, but a baby can do. Which indicates that there is more intelligence in the upper and the lower lip of one baby than all the brains of all the obstetricians put together. Ashley Montagu Interview by Michael Mendizza

In 1982, the state of California completed the largest study ever undertaken on the root causes of crime and violence. The number one cause was found to be medical interference with childbirth in our hospitals.---Joseph Chilton Pearce

There is no doubt in my mind….that a large proportion of brain-injured and learning disabled children are the result of obstetric drugs….Most women are unaware that obstetric drugs diminish the supply of oxygen to the unborn baby’s brain and can result in brain damage.---Diana Korte

" Every study that has compared midwives and obstetricians has found better outcomes for midwives for same-risk patients. In some studies, midwives actually served higher risk populations than the physicians and still obtained lower mortalities and morbidities. The superiority and safety of midwifery for most women no longer needs to be proven. It has been well established." ( Madrona, Lewis & Morgaine, The Future of Midwifery in the United States, NAPSAC News Fall/Winter 1993)

Pregnant women who want to avoid surgical birth know they have to avoid the hospital.....“Women are having their bodies completely hijacked,” says Dr. Jennifer Lang, M.D., a 38-year-old board certified ob-gyn based in southern California who specializes in complex gynecologic surgery and has attended over 1,000 births. Although Dr. Lang gave birth to her first child at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, she chose to have her subsequent children at home.....“After a lot of research and time working in the hospital I realized that I felt safer delivering at home without the time constraints and medical equipment restrictions like continuous fetal monitoring,” Dodge explains in an email.   Continuous fetal monitoring, though the norm in most American hospitals, has been repeatedly shown to increase the likelihood of C-section and instrumental birth without improving fetal outcomes. Hospitals in Scandinavia, where the infant and maternal mortality rates are much lower than in the United States, have discontinued its use......“In residency I witnessed complications that we doctors cause. There were so many,” Dr. Fish explains as her pudgy 7-month-old daughter Kailani gums her shoulder."....“But if doctors could step back they would see that the vast majority of these complications happen because of things that are done to the mothers in the process of giving birth in the hospital. When you take away medicinal pain relief, epidurals, restriction of food and water, staff coming in and out of the room, and routine vaginal exams while women are in active labor, you can significantly reduce the complications that are caused by the interventions themselves. Moms do better without unnecessary interventions than they do when they’re overly managed.” [2015 Jan] Why are Medical Professionals who Deliver Babies in Hospitals Choosing to have their Own Babies at Home?

  “I think what a lot of people don’t realize in a closed space like NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) is that they’ve decided that we need to vaccinate these babies on-time. Two months after they’re born…bam, there it goes. This baby could be four months early and still supposed to be inside their mother, weighting three or four pounds and getting the same amount of vaccines as a 200 pound man.”....“I’ve sat in a room with our on-call staff of physicians and practitioners (when they say) “Oh wow, this is so embarrassing this 25 weeker never actually required a breathing tube and going on the vent after he was born, he was so strong. But we gave him his two month vaccinations and he got intubated last night ha ha, oops how embarrassing. The step-down units are calling the NICU’s and saying “hey we’re going to go ahead and give these four babies their two month shots today, make sure you have beds ready because we all know they’re going to have increased breathing difficulties, feeding and digestion difficulties, apnea, and bradycardia. This is what goes on”[2015 June] NEW JAMA STUDY CONFIRMS NURSE WHISTLEBLOWING: ROUTINE HOSPITAL VACCINE DAMAGE HAPPENING TO INFANTS

[2009 oct] MRI Studies: The Brain Permanently Altered From Infant Circumcision by Dr. Paul D. Tinari Ph.D.  A neurologist who saw the results to postulated that the data indicated that circumcision affected most intensely the portions of the victim's brain associated with reasoning, perception and emotions. Follow up tests on the infant one day, one week and one month after the surgery indicated that the child's brain never returned to its baseline configuration. In other words, the evidence generated by this research indicated that the brain of the circumcised infant was permanently changed by the surgery........Not only could we not publish the results of our research, but we also had to destroy all of our results. If we refused to comply, we were all threatened with immediate dismissal and legal action.

[2006] Continuous cardiotocography (CTG) as a form of electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) for fetal assessment during labour.   Continuous cardiotocography during labour is associated with a reduction in neonatal seizures, but no significant differences in cerebral palsy, infant mortality or other standard measures of neonatal well-being. However, continuous cardiotocography was associated with an increase in caesarean sections and instrumental vaginal births. The real challenge is how best to convey this uncertainty to women to enable them to make an informed choice without compromising the normality of labour.
