I gave birth to my daughter at home.
at that time I was 18th abroad.
in the hospital, the woman had to give birth on a gynecological chair.
she was shaved,got an enastate and she was covered with sterile wipes so that she herself was separated from her abdomen.
on the side of your abdomen was the clinicstaff.
her torso was alone.
when the child came out, they hung it on their feet and made them cry, because the umbilical cord was the first thing they had cut off the complete supply of oxygen.
if it didn’t cry immediately, you’d cut it on the butt.
When it screamed like at spies, silver nitrate drops were dripped into his eye.That still exists in many places.
who burn like the devil.
then the baby, which had never rolled apart, was forcibly stretched out and measured.
then again on an ice-cold metal scale.
the whole with bright surgical headlights , in small eyes, which until then knew only fog light.
then quickly washed, tightened, wrapped and briefly placed in the mother’s arm.
then it was taken to the infant ward.
I didn’t want that.
i’ve been informed.
there was no internet yet.
but I have found that in Holland, where there are the most domestic births, the death rate of mother and child was lowest.I suspect that is still the case.
first, at home you have a midwife who only takes care of you and doesn’t have to chop between different jobs.
this makes you immediately notice if something is wrong.
since many investigations are carried out beforehand, most risks have been eliminated.
The midwife, for example, does not give birth at home if you are anemic.Then there could be a lack of oxygen.
it is therefore very rarethat complications occur.And then she can grab you and drive you to the hospital.
this happened to a friend of mine.She continued there with her midwife.
this makes her with the slightest doubt, because she risks, unlike the doctors in the hospital, her license,if something happens.
So you can give birth as you like.
you will not be connected to machines.
you don’t have to lie.
have you ever tried to capwhile lying down ?
then you know why I don’t want to have a child lying down.
you press when you want to press.
No one has to tell you when.
you notice it.
you can see in a mirror how far you are already.
you can feel the open cervic with your hand and caress the head.
that takes away so much pain!
the child comes out.
if you want, with smouldied light and soft music.
it is placed on your belly.
it can start breathingin peace because it is still connected to you via the umbilical cord.
his lungs are still folded.
this must be so horrible when she, snaps,is the first to cut the cord and child has suffocation as the first experience.
the cord pulses and sends oxygen.The child tries to breathecarefully.
I just got goosebumps.
and then it breathes. Nothing can happen.
has the safety cord.
the cord stops pulsating when it is no longer needed.
then you can cutthem.
the child starts looking for your breast.
First of all.
that knows what it has to do.
you don’t have milk yet, but the colostrum.
this is a pre-milk that acts like a vaccination for the baby.
it has almost no immunesystem.
sucking stimulates the pulling together of your uterus.
which will be smalleragain so quickly.
Every timeyou breastfeed.
immediately after birth.
has ever heard of regression difficulties?
na if the woman doesnot breastfeed, it is clear.
the child nibbles, your uterus squints the mother’scake, the placenta out.
it is taken away from you in the clinic and they make medications and creams out of it.
you can keepthem .
it belongs to YOU.
you can buryit, it used to be eaten.
she fed the child and then served to strengthen the weakened mother.
if you have caressed and breastfed your baby enough, it can be put into a warm bath.
No, not for washing.
it has a lubrication on the skin that protectsit.
But the baby was in the warm water for nine months.
now the midwife or the dad lets it playin the warm water.
my daughter had very gently opened eyes and was deeplyrelaxed.
By the way, she cried a bit for the first time on her third day of life.
then, at some point, you can put baby on carefully and everyone rests.
when the baby is like this, always with you, a lot happens by itself.
For example, my daughter never cried in the first few days because we always woke up at the same time because my body reacted to her.
have your child with you.
Did you know that the proximity of the child, his sounds, his crying stimulate the milk production?
Sure, you know that clinics today try to take someof these good things into account, but through the clinker day you have to adapt to them more than they do.
if you are afraid of a home birth, a birth house is a good alternative.
Hospitals are also very germinated these days and if it is not necessary, I would not go there.
Pregnancy and childbirth are not a disease.
a friend of mine, Norwegian , gave birth to one of her children alone, in a tent.
At that time I only had one room in a commune with a mattress on the floor.
And this music ran:
