The Hawaii House of Representatives Health Committee has passed the Safe Baby Resolution and it will go on to the House!!
Safe Baby Resolution asks the legislators to order the study the early primal period of conception through infancy as the foundational time for health, wellness, and harmony as well as foundational time of the myriad of social and physical concerns of society. The resolution looks at what both our hearts and the science tell us that a human being needs from pre-conception through infancy as the foundation for a safe, healthy, and harmonious life. We seek to make gestation and birth gentle, drug-free, and safe for mothers and babies as well as for medical caregivers and society. The resolution supports all parties working together in partnership to create this foundation to support harmony for our babies -- and, worldwide.
What a blessing to get the news from my colleague in Hawaii this evening, and particularly today!! My GI Joe's birthday!! This is very powerful for me -- I was writing the Safe Baby Resolution and support materials during the months prior to, during, and since my son's deployment to Iraq. As I grieved my baby's preparation and leaving for war and wrote, my deepest heart's desire for a more loving and harmonious world for our children was given voice and was heard. Harmony can come from chaos and pain. Perhaps the war in Iraq will eventually bring us to harmony, as the war within can do.
I am reminded that rather than create a war on obstetrics, let's create the way for harmonious, healthy birth -
