Before you read this blog post, go back and read PART 1:
There is a lot more in that one of the specific ways women experience mind games during their prenatal maternity care.
I just want moms to stop signing up for the snowball effect with their eyes closed. I want them to be educated about the process of birth. I want them to know how their bodies REALLY work and that they were built for this process. I want them to understand that their mind is where the battle really is - not their bodies. And if they can trust themselves to give birth the way they trust themselves to do anything else, they will give birth when their baby says they are ready, and they will have a healthy, alert, good eater and good sleeper in their arms upon delivery.
The USA has a profit driven health care system. If you want to make lots of money, this would be a great industry to get into. That is, until individuals begin to take responsibility for their own health and begin to question what is being recommended to them. At some point, the insurance industry is going to fall apart because the public cannot afford to pay and the industry itself cannot sustain the abuse it's been funding for decades.
Most of all, I think we as women need to get back to the way we've cared for the health of our families for millennia - and that is to educate ourselves but also follow our intuition. Why have we replaced intuition and good sense with beeps and pills?
Your children depend on your good sense and intuition for all other areas of their lives and well-being. Don't let them down on the day they arrive earth-side.
May this new year be the year you start asking questions and taking charge of your own health and the health of your family. You deserve to have respectful, honest caregivers and so do your children.
