I have two beautiful daughters one born in the hospital and my other daughter was born at home in the water. I became a birth activist after my homebirth. Women should be free to choose where and with whom they give birth.

Eating Placenta helps the Baby Blues

 Some mothers are eating their own placentas to help stabilize their hormones after giving birth. This doesn't mean that women are cooking up placenta stew necessarily, but it does mean women are looking for natural alternatives to combat the baby blues and postpartum depression. Some women claim ingesting placenta in capsule form gives their bodies the additional hormonal and nutritional boost they need after giving birth. There are also women who are saving their placenta capsules to combat menopause's hormonal dip later in life. What better hormone to help a woman than her own special formulation of hormones? Benefits are noticed without the risks of taking synthetic hormones.

Birth Defect Research

 Pregnant women are bombared with conflicting information of what is safe and unsafe for a pregnant woman to use or consume. Some pharmaceutical companies will say their medication is safe during pregnancy and many times they cannot support this claim through any long term studies. Ethical laws are also in place to protect pregnant women, babies and children from being experimented on to further scientific research and this is why many studies are never done. Birth Defect Research for Children is a non-profit organization that gives information about birth defects in children and provides support services.

Trailer for "Pregnant in America"

 A film documenting the state of maternal care in America and showing the people that get hurt by the use of harmful procedures and drugs. The video warns of the extreme serious risks of the drug cytotec to induce labor which is still often used in major hospitals because it works better than pitocin and is extremely cheap. A major risk of being induced with cytotec is uterine rupture and mom and baby can both die, this happens far too often. The FDA says they have no way to stop hospitals from using this dangerous induction drug, even though the drug packaging clearly says "Not for use on pregnant women". Hospitals have been biting the bullet at times and settling for large payouts...that drug must be dirt cheap if one hospital can pay nearly 27 million in settlements. To make all this worse, the deaths are poorly documented with no real details of why mom and/or baby did not live. How can this improve when there are not proper records kept to facilitate accurate investigations? The drug  manufacturer, hospitals, and the FDA must believe profits are more important than moms and babies and no one will catch on. Mamas spread the word...this is not right and women need to know the risks of induction!!
