First, Do No Harm

Pregnancy – Do No Harm

Women’s bodies are designed to bring forth new life.

Fetal scanning? Are you sure this retail opportunity in birthing is even safe?

Your questions answered . . .

Dr Sarah Buckley speaks back in 2005 – as pertinent now as then..

Was it ever supposed to be used ahead of gut instinct and common sense?

They are made to bleed, then to conceive with sex and to grow babies well and birth them beautifully. Given the right environment, and appropriate nutrition, many babies can flow through one woman, growing like weeds on the side of the road, healthily and strong.

Or not.

What will you do to assuage your worries, all the while messing with the natural blueprint?
Please – read this before you make choices that are convenient or based on your worries – as natural undisturbed birthing traditionally has been the very best for a bonded life post birth for mum and baby – and a happy family is what you expect – make sure it happens by going natural – as indeed home birth is safest – and wherever you feel safest you will (birthing culture dependent of course!!) be safest.

If you are not focused on baby – but on what is what your friends  and family expect – yo may not get what you expect – a happy baby – but  a commonly expected one – an unsettled baby.

. . .  and an upset mum – and it is you that has to break the circle – as it is you who is the adult – all baby can do is arch back and wail . .and ‘controlled crying’ is not a heartfelt maternal response. Start consciously – and do not do anything that will break your bonding – or your baby’s gentle loving beginnings.

What we have in the First World, is a free for all medical specialists.
An obstetrician is not a specialist in normal and optimal birthing – but in high risk and in dangerous. You are a well woman – and if you need an obstetrician – great maternity care is not given through medicine – but by consulting a natural health care professional who is  a continuity of life person – all through the life and perhaps start with the pregnancy App that I have designed  as this will show you the nutritional and common sense wise womanly solutions to common problems that are not medical – but life issues – easily, safely remedied through easy safe and cheap methods – at home.

Distress in lack of preparation to ensure the seeds used (sperm and eggs) and the garden the baby is to grow in (mum’s metabolism allowing perfect health thus easy periods, and no fertility issues – thus easy pregnancy and birthing and babies and lactation ) is not assured if and when you start with medical interventions – as they are not about the good care that has always been in community health – mums and grandmothers all know what you could be doing – perhaps start listening to you older women relations more?.

Why would Nature get it wrong?

Who thinks about the birth in terns of what it means for baby?

Why do ANYTHING that may impact negatively on your most precious being –  to your new being still formed?

Primum non nocere is a Latin phrase that means “First, do no harm“. The phrase is sometimes recorded as primum nil nocere.[1]

Nonmaleficence, which derives from the maxim, is one of the principal precepts of medical ethics that all medical students are taught in medical school and is a fundamental principle for emergency medical services around the world.

Another way to state it is that “given an existing problem, it may be better not to do something, or even to do nothing, than to risk causing more harm than good.” It reminds the physician and other health care providers that they must consider the possible harm that any intervention might do.

It is invoked when debating the use of an intervention that carries an obvious risk of harm but a less certain chance of benefit.

Is fetal scanning safe?

Is it even effective?

Is fetal scanning behind a lot of the autism that is so prevalent today?
Can you go without knowing things that will be apparent later and trust that your baby is as perfect as you have worked towards through your conscious birth planning?

Or possibly – you were in such a hurry to get pregnant, quality was an after thought?

Possibly you did not think to prepare for birth?

Why not – buying a car / building a house is not that foundational as making a body a person carries around for life – perhaps see more here.

Exposures to Toxic chemicals and products

Although obstetricians warn pregnant women not to drink alcohol and not to smoke during pregnancy, we are learning that there are other chemicals and products that women should be careful about during those critical
nine months.

The Environmental Working Group found more than 200 chemicals in the cord blood of babies
tested right after birth.

Here are twelve suggestions of ways that may help reduce fetal_exposure to toxins.
