It’s the Baby
I had to write a new blog today…I was asked a few questions early this morning and I need to address them.
My wife is 9 months pregnant and I get asked, “when are you going to have the baby?” My answer, “when the baby is ready.”
Logical in my mind.
I was asked this morning when the c-section was planned…I had to pause before answering because I didn’t want to laugh first. There are legitimate real reasons and I’m grateful that the medical community can do c-sections for those babys and moms that need that emergency service. But that wasn’t the question, it was when is it scheduled…I’ve heard women scheduling their c-sections, but I had no idea how common it was. Birth is a NATURAL PROCESS that needs to happen when the baby is ready…
My question is WHY are we scheduling c-sections? This is a procedure designed to save the life of a baby or mother not when it’s “convienent.” I have yet to hear a good answer to WHY women are doing this. A woman’s body has grown, taken care of and allowed the baby to thrive and WE think we’re smarter than the body and WE get to decide when to pull that baby out?!? That’s ridiculous.
ANOTHER ISSUE from this morning…”make sure she gets the shot.” My reaction, “umm..no.” I was confused so i asked, “which shot?” because there are so many…again, this from someone who I thought was educated said, “the one where she doesn’t have to feel anything.”
so an epidural…
My brain asks what does an epidural do? An epidural is an anesthetic and narcotic through a catheter injected into the epidural space surrounding the spinal cord. As we all know, your nerve system is the master system and controls everything in your body. Does the epidural drug know exactly which nerves to numb and only the nerves that control pain or does it numb the all the nerves equally? Drugs aren’t that smart.
Let me tell you what is intelligent…your body. Each of us were conceived from TWO CELLS and now we are trillions of organized organs, blood cells, nerve cells, muscles…and we believe we are smarted than that. This is why we check the spine of kids, adults and grandparents because with a proper functioning nerve system you will live a higher quality of life, have a better and stronger immune system, have more natural energy and live the life we were designed it.
Be adjusted, live better without narcotics. Period.
