Yep, you read me right.
I also used to think that “ Just saying NO “ was enough to stop the abuse from medical practitioners during childbirth but once again, I was wrong.
DO you want to know why?
I can give you a clear example that happens over and over again.
E.g., if they decided they want to perform a vaginal examination on you, they will do it no matter what. It can be now or in one hour. Question will be still flowing your way until you consent to it.
So how on earth is this oK?
How is this even a standard practice nowadays?
It baffles me how VE’s are still a thing. Come on; It’s 2021!
But it seems like birth practices haven’t evolved much with time.
What is it going to take?
I used to go on and on and on and on about “ How the system has to change in order to___ ”, and guess what?
I am done with that.
The system is designed to what exactly what it is supposed to do. And that’s your choice to sign up for the package.
Unfortunately, the system won’t change. But we can!
We ( Women, sorry guys) are in charge.
We can be the change. We can opt-out of a system that doesn’t agree with physiological birth.
We don’t have to birth in Hospital. We don’t.
And I am not here telling all of you to birth at home. No.
What I came here to say is: It is your birth, your body, your baby, so YOU decide.
