The Most Dangerous Place to Have a Baby
When I had a child over two decades ago, I knew a couple of things:
- The last place I wanted to give birth was a hospital
- My body would know exactly what to do
And that’s pretty much how I did it.
I found the most grassroots midwife I could, picked up a copy of Spiritual Midwifery, and trusted that the eons of wisdom that were encoded into my genes would show me how to birth my baby.
That’s what is meant to happen.
A woman taps into her ancestral wisdom, the same way that newborns know how to find their mother’s nipple—in every species.
We see this instinctive behaviour in a being that has no conditioning yet.
And that’s the issue with modern birth.
Natural childbirth is a totally instinctive process.
What has messed it up, is the layers of conditioning superimposed on top of it.
As a species—and the breed Americanus is supremely guilty of this—we’ve tried to civilize a process that is meant to be one of the last remaining vestiges of our primal energy, our wildness, our innate knowing, and tried to turn it into a predictable, scheduled, clinical thing.
It’s a wild, cosmic miracle.
The door between worlds opens up, and a new spirit emerges into this time and space.
Can it get anymore mysterious and magical than that?
So where is the most dangerous place to have a baby?
An American hospital.
At least, of all the places in the industrialized world.
And maybe Brazil.
Because the American/medical/Western/allopathic medical system is only really good at putting out fires, it has applied that same philosophy to childbirth:
As a medical emergency that needs interference and managing every step of the way.
I have to say, I was utterly shocked to see the current statistics on birth in the US as of right now:
- 1 in 3 women give birth via C-section, many of which are simply “scheduled”, and for no dire cause.
- The US leads the first world in maternal death rates.
- A woman is 4 times more likely to die of a C-section birth than a vaginal birth.
And the list goes on.
The same way I promise that every woman can have a vaginal orgasms, squirt across the room, and every man can learn to have sex all night and orgasm without ejaculation,so too can every woman have a pleasurable, self-actualizing and even orgasmic birth.
However, there are many things that interrupt that process, and much of it is the standard way that birth is practiced in the modern–and especially American—world today.
I’ve created a three-part video series where I explain:
- The truth of what’s really going on in modern, hospital birth practices today
- What birth was truly meant to look like—the greatest orgasm of your life
- How you can get there
