I understand your feelings very well, I felt the same watching this!
yep... not to much of an exaggeration either... I had been considering a midwife with my second but feared the judgement of others so I didn't do it. Knowing what I do now I wish I hadn't worried about what other people thought, the doctors caused my son's heart to stop, the doctors caused the emergency c-section and a few of my nurses were just as incompetent as this video made them out to be. (If not worse) I cannot say that I believe that modern medicine has helped us along much. Whew, guess that touched a cord with me! Thanks for sharing it Quinn, it made me giggle and cry all in one shot... I know that God is completely in control and that even in the two emergency births (both caused by doctors) He had a perfect plan.
Oh my, how crazy! :) And speaking of births and drugs on here lately, I wanted to share that my husband and I find it very ironic that he's studying to be an anesthetist while I'm shunning all drugs, lol! (and he agrees with me on this!!!) I tell him that he's needed for so much more than birth-related drugs and epidurals, though! :)
If only more women would step up and teach the younger ones about natural birth! Modern medicine has mde them scared and thinking taht we should all be able to experience childbirth without pain. God dod not give women pain in chilbrith without a reason. I was just at a women's dinner and a young girl(probally 19 or 20) was there asking so many questions as if no one had given her any truth. She wanted to know so much. Many of the women tried to change the subject msny times. I found out today she had an emergency c-section. My first thought was I wounder if that could have been prevented? Ok, this is one of my soap boxes. I'll step down now. :)
I agree with you 100% Bekki. At the same time I'm just as bothered by the number of women I come across who are willfully ignorant about it. Were you to try to discuss their options with them they shrug and say they'll just do what their dr. says. I feel it's by God's grace that I wasn't in that girls position getting a c/s. I was soooo ignorant with my first! Being short of stature (4'11") I'm surprised knowing what I now know about the healthcare industry, that they didn't suggest a c/s under the assumption of an inadequate pelvis. It's a good thing I delivered him 9 hours ahead of the dr's schedule :DI related a story in the comments section of the previous post (directed to Kate) about a 1st time mom who I just heard about that was c/s after 12 hrs. In a nutshell, her baby was anterior so after 12 hours of labor - from the time her water broke- they called it and took the baby! Of all the ridiculous reasons! It's an easy soapbox to get on isn't it?
Mosey said: I cannot say that I believe that modern medicine has helped us along muchAnd there are stats out there to prove it! Most recently I came across this article titled Too Many Women Dying US While Having Babies. http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1971633,00.html#ixzz0hz6oVBwDI think you can truly see God's hand working in your life every time you gaze into those little chocolate eyes of your daughter. :) Even with the intent to adopt, it's hard to try to fit it in between back to back pregnancies and babies as I'm finding out. We don't but fire up the conversation, but I discover I'm expecting again!
LOL Kate! His will be a well-appreciated occupation to be sure!
