I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted on this blog (like, a long, LONG time) but if you could check out my shop, I’d really appreciate it- and if you don’t want to buy, please reblog! I’m trying to save up for a doula workshop and to move to Oregon to become a direct-entry midwife.

I had a conversation with the obstetrician on call the day I did my job shadow about marijuana (as it’s extremely popular where I live). She said that moms come in all the time who have been smoking it their entire pregnancy, and that they tend to have more complications in labor than other mothers, as she’s seen it.

That’s true about smoking in general as well, though… not just marijuana.  People still don’t realise what kind of consequences smoking has on unborn babies.  Even later in life those kids could develop more health issues related to it.

Now, I’m an advocate of letting people make their own choices, but smoking is one of my biggest pet peeves as a midwife.

Oh, of course, I was only mentioning marijuana because that’s what the icons were about. We also talked about cigarette smoke and how mothers tend to say “My mom did it and I turned out just fine”. The OB said, “Yes, but you don’t know that you might’ve been bigger and healthier if she hadn’t.”

If only images like this were so widespread that people would see it and be upset about a breastfeeding baby eating an oreo, rather than the fact that he is breastfeeding!  If you were to google this image you would see a crazy amount of censorship… there’s a nipple there… right there… look closely… can’t you see it?!  LOL

LOVE!

Thank you so much! Me either! :) Good luck to you! It’s…. incredible. The pull towards a woman in labor is seriously something to behold. It’s hard not to feel in awe of a woman doing such a great thing, not to mention watching a woman become a mother. And even though there was so much technology and medical tools in the room, it’s impossible to ignore that birth is bloody, primal, and above all, sacred.

Judging someone else’s past experience holds no value. For her, she was rescued. This is her interpretation, and we know nothing of her situation, that is the only interpretation available to us. She can troll all she wants, don’t stoop to that level
