thanks for sharing that link. It was definitely a good read. I saved her blog under my favorites and plan to read it often. Wish there were more people in the medical field who are as informed as this nurse is. Too bad she's not the one calling the shots in the labor ward.
ESTHER GRACE WAS BORN ON MARCH 23RD, 2009: 4:15 PM, 9 POUNDS, 20.5 INCHES. ANOTHER WONDERFUL HOME WATER BIRTH!!!
The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world. -Mother Teresa~
Wow. I had NO idea about Cytocec being unsafe for pregnant moms.. I know induction is a bad idea (especially at 40w5d SO not postterm) but I guess I just assumed it was "safe" as far as drugs given to pregnant women goes...
Inductions, I think, are just messing with mother nature and God's intent. Baby will come when it's ready. Now, yes, I do agree that induction is a good idea with pre-eclampsia or something but for just post dates? I had an induction for postdates with my first pregnancy that led to a c-section for failure to progress. I'm seeing a new OB who's supporting me and VBAC. He says my c-section was a result of my body NEVER going into labor despite AROM and pitocin. My poor baby went through hell through induction and my body never wanted to get started. It never went into labor. I never felt the first contraction--just some constant, bad menstrual-like cramping.
That poor woman and that poor baby. Thank goodness both were okay.
