President Bush admitting that 'it's bad in Iraq' acknowledged Thursday that the United States needs a new approach in the unpopular war and promised to unveil details in an upcoming speech.
Hallejulah -- and this means there's also hope for America's War on Natural Birth! that is contributing to terrorism around the world.
Earlier today I made a post in which I likened Dr.Amy's doggedness (in focusing on "alive baby" as the measure, rather than quality, and in refusing to even consider that hospital birth is not safe) to our country's leader's refusal to see that "changing the course" is necessary.
C 'mon, Dr. Amy, you disgrace your profession. Or, is this just your opinion or your "painted-yourself-in-the-corner, spinach-in-your-teeth, caught-with-your- pants-down" egotistical defense. Dr. Amy, Prez, just admit it -- you're not perfect. IT's okaaaaay. So, can we all just change course now, and save the QUALITY of lives of our babies?
My respect for the President is restored. What about it, Amy and the OB's -- can you admit that obstetric medical care is broken, not working, harming more than it saves? Creating warriors? If our President can finally admit to the WOLRD that he needs to lead and particpate in changing course, and that he can rely on the finding of a study group, surely you and your colleagues could do so too?
How many more babies have to die because of surgical birth or live a lifetime of physical, emotional, and spiritual problems from unacknowledged and unresolved birth trauma before you'll change course?
Now, let's all work on forgiveness and support him to chart a new course that brings resolution to Iraq and brings our loved one's home. Let's look at how we can do this with maternal and infant safety in birth.
Peace on Earth begins with Peace at Birth
Dedicated to my son, Lt. Joe Uray, with the 3rd Battalion 297th Infantry, serving in Iraq, born to be a Gentle Warrior -- wanted, loved, with peaceful gestation, but violating, frightening interventions during labor (harrassed to take drugs, bed-bound, artificially ruptured membranes, pestered to let nursing students observe), birth (Demerol, fetal scalp monitor, supine - legs up in stirrups, strangers, episotomy, early cord cutting) and his first hour of life (unconscious resuscitation*, separated for medically unnecessary interventions - shot, scrubbed down, eye drops, weighed, stretched, and measured). Safe at home breastfed for eighteen months, attachment parented - co-slept, carried, gentle discipline, organic foods. God Bless you, Joe Joe, and all of your brave colleagues.
My heartfelt appreciation to William Emerson, PhD, Raymond Castellino, DC, and Wendy McCarty, RN, PhD, David Chamberlain, PhD, and Gerald Vind, PhD -- my teachers and colleagues who made it possible for me to heal mine and my children's birth woundings.
