While we usually talk about the importance of an undisturbed birth, an undisturbed immediate post-partum is equally, if not more important!

And, the sequel to the previous post. The author rightly says "“Birth should ideally be a partnership between birthing mother and caregiver. ....... But I do firmly stand behind the protection of a woman’s intelligence and dignity during birth, and that means that she has to still have her rights in the birthing room.”

Good read! Every mother has a right to full informed consent; she also has the right to refuse to consent! Read on for both the original piece and its sequel ..

Excellent advice and tips! Being a VBAC momma myself, the single most important thing that helped me through my own birth, was my OB not saying, "you can try, but ... " Once I was in the hospital, it also helped that no one treated me any differently than a first time mom in labor. As far as the describing the experience .. words are hard .. amazing, healing, empowering, and the post-partum was such a breeze, not only because my body was not hurting, but because bonding and breastfeeding were so amazingly natural and easy!

"Birth is a rite of passage of women. Their journey should be honored, their rights should be fiercely protected, and their stories should be shared.” ~Marcie Macari

A strongly worded article - the link in the very first paragraph is to a video .. amazing how big corporations are adding additives after no or very poor research. As the author says, do not feel guilty if you have already formula fed your baby; but do know the dangers, and do advocate for breastfeeding henceforth.

Newborn babies cannot be spoilt .. they need to be fed (breastfed) frequently .. they cry for all sort of reasons, many times just because they would like to be held close .. good article reminding parents just how needy babies are!
