Had an interesting visit with the OB today. This woman was harsh (physically, when she scrubbed the gel off of my belly), and the epitome of western maternity care. She even suggested that inducing me would be a way to avoid a 'surprise' birth as I have had a couple of very fast labors. 28 weeks and she brings up induction.
I'm just in shock contrasting midwifery care (which is my only experience), with modern medicalized maternity care. How sad a state. And these women and babies get robbed of such a beautiful part of life. That's why I am so excited to publish my book on the normalcy of birth.
