Part 1 discusses my home water birth experience and working with midwives in Ontario, Canada. It is time women take back their bodies from the corporately captured medical establishment, birth their babies at home and stop the make-work meddling of natural childbirth. We must stand up to the bullying of this truly lost industry and say no to unnecessary interventions, constant ultrasounds, dopplers and heart monitors and other fear mongering tactics that damage our children & take a mother out of her true birthing power.
[Here an FDA official speaks and says]…
‘We’ve been looking at a population of children… about 2,000 children… about half of whom have been irradiated [with ultrasound] in the Denver, Colorado area. And the indication there is that these children who have been irradiated have a reduced birth weight.’”
The FDA has known, since at least the early 1990s, that ultrasound causes growth retardation in children. They nevertheless decided to raise the maximum allowable output on obstetrical ultrasound machines 8-fold, malevolently and knowingly exposing developing babies to even more radiation.
“Etzel and associates (1997) found studies suggesting that exposure to excessive noise during pregnancy could result in hearing impairment, prematurity, and IUGR [intrauterine growth retardation]…”
Please note that babies HEAR ultrasound and to them, it is like being in a subway station when the trains are coming in.
