The American Medical Association and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology created a resolution AGAINST HOMEBIRTH, and they’re discussing legislation to outlaw having your baby in the comfort of your own home. I’m frustrated on so many levels, smoke is practically coming out of my ears.
As a woman planning on getting pregnant and wanting a home birth… this is ridiculous and disappointing. Leave it to the “medical” doctors to do something like this out of fear for losing business. Maybe if they didn’t treat having a baby as a disease and realized that it’s a beautiful, natural process which merits respect and trust in a woman’s body and intuition, we wouldn’t feel the need to run from them.
