Great Blog Posts

I've been reading some great blogs lately, and wanted to list the posts I've enjoyed/learned from the most. In no particular order:

The Profit of Pain Relief and All About Due Dates: Do Due Dates Mean Your Baby is Due? on Bellies and Babies

We Birth the Way We Live on Birth Change

Conscious Cesarean Birth on Making Birth Safe in the U.S.

This blog post includes a link to the full text of an amazing article, "The Natural Cesarean: A Woman-Centred Technique"
Abstract: Although much effort has gone into promoting early skin-to-skin contact and parental involvement at vaginal birth, caesarean birth remains entrenched in surgical and resuscitative rituals, which delay parental contact, impair maternal satisfaction and reduce breastfeeding. We describe a 'natural' approach that mimics the situation at vaginal birth by allowing (i) the parents to watch the birth of their child as active participants (ii) slow delivery with physiological autoresuscitation and (iii) the baby to be transferred directly onto the mother's chest for early skin-to-skin. Studies are required into methods of reforming caesarean section, the most common operation worldwide.

Natural Birthing can cause many big and serious problems for you, if you do not have any proper and exact guideline of doing this process. Natural Birthing is good for women but it also dangerous for woman and baby because you don’t have any tools and medicine to overcome emergency problems which can be occur during birthing process or after it.
