So here were the stats: I am a "loose" 4cm, 90% effaced and -2 to -1 station. My MW offered to do a membrane sweep, but when she was there said there was really nother there for her to sweep.

Here is the issue, my MW could actually feel the baby's hand next to its head what she seemed to think made it very likely that there would be a coumpound presentation (hand would deliever next to the head). The midwifesaid the biggest concern with this was increased tearing, but there were things she could do to minimize the risk. It just made a bit nervous because this was something new I have no experience with and I did not anticipate. I was already a little nervous about the home birth, and this definitely got me a bit more concerned. Does anyone have any experience with this?

do you think you could do any thing to convince baby to move it's hand back? I have no experience...sounds like MW isn't really freaking out though...hugs and prayers that then hand will move back where it's supposed to be!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
