falling-fr0m-th3-stars asked: I love your blog! I cannot wait to become a midwife! What's it like being in the room while someone is giving birth? :)
descantforhope replied to your post: I can’t help but wonder if the anon had a legitimate medical issue or if she had interventions & things done that put her in the emergency they then “saved” her from. Even little things like lack of privacy, being strapped down on monitors, or internal exams can alter labor progress. The cervix is like the sphincter & shy in public! Judging someone...

Anonymous asked: To the Anon: She wasn't acting like she knew everything, she was curious why unnecessary things were being done, I'd want to know to0! Cutting a woman for no reason & without permission? It's cruel & wrong. Midwives or CNM are just as qualified as doctors for birth. Some work in conjunction with hospitals, birthing centers, or surgeons. Surgeons & hospitals are used only...
Anonymous asked: You are not a doctor stop acting like you know everything why did you go if you were just gonna bitch? That's the problem with midwifes, you think you know everything and hospitals can't help or doctors don't know what theyre doing. If I would have had a midwife and given birth at home my baby would have died MEDICAL HELP IS OKAY TO HAVE
simplylaurel asked: How did you get your job shadow?
Anonymous asked: How did you get involved with volunteering at L&D? I didn't know they let you watch the birth like that! That's so cool. Episiotomies are the things that upset me the most, ESPECIALLY when they are done without permission or even the woman's knowledge (which is most of the time). And some people (Drs included) don't even think they're done at all anymore, even when the...
"Bree's first birth" story :)
Ahhh Okay So I arrived at the hospital at 8 AM, got scrubbed up and set up with the nurse who was taking care of the only patient in L&D. She had been given Cervadil the night before, and was checked shortly after I arrived. .5 cm, 10-15% effaced, -3 station, and very upset to be so. She expressed irritation (dropping f-bombs left and right and yelling at just about everyone) at...
I know what I’m doing for the rest of my life.
Anonymous asked you: 1/3 Ive been reading your blog for the past few days, and I LOVE IT! I’m around the same age as you, and I, too, would love to be a midwife. It’s the only thing I really have a passion for. I’m against abortion as well for the same reasons you are, so don’t feel bad about what those people said about you not being able to be a “good”...
Why is it so hard for birthing women to say no? →
birthisbeautiful: Why is it so hard for women in labor to say “no”? “No, I won’t let you use the vacuum extractor on my baby.” “No, I won’t come in for an induction when the non-stress test says my baby is fine.” “No, I don’t want to be confined to the bed on the baby monitor. Use a doppler instead.” “No, I am not giving you permission to cut me.” I’ve noticed that, more and more, women...
