Be on the lookout for a new series I will be posting in the near future about childbirth. I'm in the research and interview phase as of right now. I have interviewed professionals as well as mothers and will present what I found out regarding the subject of childbirth. Just to give you a taste of what is to come...
Childbirth is viewed as a medical condition in our country instead of the beautiful miracle it is. Unnecessary interventions have become commonplace during labor and birth, and complications ensue as a result. America's rates of Caesarian section are outrageous and maternal/infant mortality rates are among the highest of all developed countries.
We will explore why that is and what choices women have to give birth. Most women today are afraid of childbirth. They are in fear of labor pains and fearful of something going wrong. We shouldn't be fearful of the natural and beautiful miracle of childbirth.
God created our bodies to do this and statistically if you are healthy, you should not have any complications in a normal delivery without interventions or drugs. It is when interventions are used that the risks go up. We will explore that as well.
I want to eradicate the fear for women. Do not worry. Educate yourself and plan ahead but do not worry. Worry never adds anything beneficial to your life. It only takes from you, harming your health and relationships. It's time to take the fear out of the equation and be comfortable doing what our bodies were designed to do.
I want to present the information I have learned to women so that they can make the best choice for them. I encourage everyone to do their own research on all topics I post about and I do my best to link to the source of my information so that you can research further.
Be on the lookout in the coming weeks for this series. I hope it will inform you of the facts and encourage you to pursue what is best for you and your baby.
