ROUNDUP OF POSTS ABOUT THE SKEPTICAL OB, DR. AMY TUTEUR MD, ON JENNY HATCHS BLOG

amy-tuteur-mediumEvery day a search engine sends me people who are looking for more information about a blogging doctor who has run a wholesale campaign against families who choose to give birth holistically. Sometimes I get one or two hits and some days it is fifteen or twenty, but every day, a few people come sniffing around looking for more information about Dr. Amy. Or as Laura Shanley and I call her, Dr. Dumbass.

So To make things easier to research I thought I would put together a little primer on Dr. Amy from my Blog.Read More »

HOW BLEAK WILL THE DARK NIGHT OF MEDICAL FASCISM BECOME?

imageI was just watching c-span and the host was talking with his guest about health care and the teaparty “people”. Many callers took the time to share views on “what the teaparty people” think, and although none claimed to be members of this maligned crowd, it was interesting to me to have others attempting to describe who I am and what I think.
image

I thought I’d take a minute to share my views on health care as it relates to teaparty attendees, simply because I am a fierce teapartier and I write a health care blog.

imageI can’t speak for others and I don’t know that any of my friends who have also taken to the streets this past year feel as I do, but I want to make one point. The dark night of medical fascism has been hanging as a blight over the American People for a long time. Each step that has been taken legislatively to remove our rights of self determination and place a doctor, a social worker, a pharmacist, and a judge over our bodies and minds has brought us to this place. The big question in my mind is,

How BLEAK will the dark night of Medical Fascism become?Read More »

A Mother makes the case for Husband and Wife Childbirth as America Socializes its Health Care System

Jenny Hatch with Ben about three hours after his Home Birth

61% of all Hospitalizations are in some form or fashion tied to Childbirth.  The money generated by Birth is “what keeps the lights on” at the hospital.  So, when we federalize medicine we are literally Socializing Birth.  Collectivist Birth is messy, rationed, focused on the greater good and does not have the time or resources to cater to the individual needs of Mothers and Babies.
I love Family Birth because it is solely focused on the individual needs of the Mother, Baby, and Family at large.  When a mother births in her own space, she has the autonomy to have it be about her needs, her family, and her agenda and goals rather than someone or something outside of her home.
Taking personal responsibility for Childbirth will free families from the balkanized mess that is going to descend upon the American Family these next few decades.

The Power of Moms 

Recently I have discovered a whole world of Mormon Mommy Bloggers who are engaged in some amazing work online.  My daughter told me about Shawni Pothiers Blog 71 Toesa few months ago. Shawni has several sisters and in laws who are dedicated Mom Bloggers and as I have explored the work they are doing, I felt it would be a great idea to share some of their links and thoughts on my own blog.

Shawni’s sister Saren has a web site called The Power of Moms A Gathering Place for Deliberate Mothers. Saren also writes a family blog called Five Kids in Five Years.

I don’t have much time for blog reading, as I spend quite a bit of my time doing my own internet work and reading about politics, but I have been so impressed with the intention these women put into their Mothering that I felt like a shout out was in order.

Final Prep before the World Economy Collapses 

Some final things to do to prepare for a time of chaos around the collapse of the Economy.

Economic Congruency: Ayn Rand points to the logical “next step” of Obamas Financial Policies

So the President is going to propose a new economic plan after his vacay at Marthas Vineyard.

He should not waste the mental energy attempting to put it together, Ayn Rand has already done the heavy lifting on that topic by taking Collectivism in America to its logical conclusion with Directive 10-289 in the chapter Miracle Metal of Atlas Shrugged.

Ayn used Fiction to help her readers understand what Marxism “Looked Like” in real life by creating fictional characters who could be played today by any of the secular humanists currently embedded in our National Government.

The Economics of Natural Mothering

I have been planning to write this post for some time now, years it feels like, and someday I plan to encapsulate these thoughts into a book written for young women. For now, I’ll try to take the mishmash of my thoughts and attempt to get something readable into the blogosphere.

I have spent untold hours reading commentary on economics these past few decades (Bar none fav author is Thomas Sowell). And with the upsurge in concerns about the economy, it feels like so many of my favorite authors have been waxing far more eloquent than I with conservative ideas for fixing the broken parts of the American Economy.

Some of the most recent liberal and conservative ideas being thrown around include limiting family size to 2 children, decelebritizing mothers who give birth to multiples, and there has been a whole lotta talk about some sort of a ginormous government stimulus to “create jobs“.

From the presidents own web site he encapsulates the feds doing the following for we the people: (All on the nickel of our future children and grandchildren)

UPDATE: Maryann Godboldo case 

For Background on Maryannes case click here

More Here at Natural News

(NaturalNews) The horrific saga of Maryanne Godboldo’s battle with domestic terrorists in the government of her home state of Michigan appear to finally be coming to an end. The Detroit Free Press reports that two higher courts have confirmed the ruling of a lower court several months ago that Godboldo’s refusal to administer the dangerous Risperdal drug to her daughter was fully legal, and that all charges and actions taken against her by the state were unwarranted. In case you missed the story, Child Protective Services (CPS) in Michigan sent a SWAT team and tank to Godboldo’s Detroit home back in April after the mother refused to keep giving her 13-year-old daughter Risperdal (risperidone), a dangerous schizophrenia drug that had been causing her daughter to experience severe adverse reactions. Godboldo’s doctor had recommended that she discontinue use of the drug, but CPS felt otherwise, and decided to launch a full-scale terrorist raid on the woman’s home, where they proceeded to illegally kidnap her daughter.

Blessing the Way, a new type of Baby Shower… 

Early in my pregnancy, I was clear that the greatest gift I could give to my husband and children was the experience of the blessing way. I felt somewhat shy and embarrassed to organize my own ceremony – but had a very clear vision of how I wanted it to go. I felt confident that if I did nothing else during this child’s gestation – the feelings and power associated with a family blessing way would be the most important “prenatal care” we could experience. So, being the little red hen that I am, I set out to create the ceremony that would serve our family best.

Saudi Life: Many Mothers Routinely “Cut” at Delivery 

Saudi Life: Many Mothers Routinely “Cut” at Delivery

written by, Aisha Al Hajjar

“THERE is a dreaded procedure routinely performed on expectant mothers that makes most cringe and fear their birth experience.  It’s called an episiotomy.  An episiotomy is a procedure in which a surgical incision is made in the tissues of the birth canal just before the baby’s head is born.  This cut causes trauma to the woman’s genital region, requires stitches after the birth, and is a matter that is considered a violation of the woman’s human rights amongst natural childbirth advocates.

This medical intervention has been done routinely for decades.  However, those who stay current with scientific research have all but abandoned the procedure.  Sadly, I find it lingering on as a matter of routine in the practice of several of the local obstetricians I have personally spoken to.  I also receive similar feedback from many of my clients who have asked me about the procedure after discussing it with their doctors in both Saudi Arabia and in Egypt.

Progressive Parenting: Interview with Dr. Stuart Fischbein – BREECH BIRTH

Breech Birth with Dr. Stuart Fischbein (click to listen)

Dr. Stuart Fischbein is a strong supporter of patients rights to informed consent and refusal. He believes a patient has the right to choose her own path given true and not skewed informed consent. Following that tenet, just as a woman should be able to choose to have an elective c/section she should be able to choose not to have one, as well. He believes the American system of hospital based obstetric practice has been eroding those choices for women for quite some time. Due to concerns of economics, expediency and fears of litigation women are being coerced to make choices that may not be in their best interest.

On this show we will be discussing Breech Birth.  He believes that term breech presentation should be treated as just a variation of normal.

Home Crafted Soap 

The kit made twenty small bars of soap. Then I purchased two more kits and made some Rose Oil soap and included the petals from a dozen red roses.

My daughters will be heading back to school in a few days and it was so fun to have Shelly come ask me if she could take some of my soap back with her. I happily handed her half a dozen bars.

This was a fun project.  And except for the dishwasher exploding with an overwhelm of bubbles when I tossed my double boiler in without scraping the hardened soap, relatively painles, and a new way to create lucious soap for just a few dollars.

Happy Soapmaking!

Blogging Mothers Magazine November 2011 Edition

 

This edition of the Magazine contains some of my recent content parsing the Occupy Wall Street Movement with the Tea Party.  I was involved in the early planning of the Denver Events and partnered with several activists to organize a variety of events around Tax Day, the 9-12 events, as well as the Health Care Debates before Obama Care was voted into place.  This activism gave me a birds eye view of the movement from the inside out and so I shared some thoughts in several of this months articles.

I also shared some movies created to share my journey to Sovereign Mothering as well as favorite radio show interviews with health freedom activists Leonard Horowitz and Sherri Kane as well as Freedom Activist Barbara Hartwell.

As always my online work is dedicated to the generations of children yet to be born on Planet Earth and I hope and pray the various forces that are currently in place to ensnare Families in a web of deceit around Health Freedom will be exposed and held accountable for their crimes against humanity.

WANTED FOR GENOCIDE

“About twenty years ago my husband and I conducted enough research on Vaccines that we made the decision not to vaccinate our five children for anything.  We trained to become Childbirth Educators and the little bits of information gleaned from the various books, articles, and research papers we studied were enough to convince us that the whole field of Vaccination was Hookum, and would prove toxic and deadly to our childrens brains and bodies.

Fast forward to 2009 and after years of Childbirth and Family Activism, and many hours of reading on the whole pandemic scam, I finally was able to put all of the various world government goals together like a huge puzzle, with the vaccines being the final piece of the whole big pathetic picture.”

TOP 25 POSTS AT THE NATURAL FAMILY BLOG – VACCINES, VACCINES, AND MORE VACCINES

Although I have stated that the Natural Family BLOG is dedicated to homebirth, my top posts from the past two years might indicate something else.

Since I started writing this blog in 2005, one of the main goals has been to help families get to the root cause of illness.  I was a vaccine damaged child and feel that my life was altered because of a bad reaction to my inoculations.  I have struggled with lifelong DEADLY chemical and food sensitivities.  With more runs to the ER than anyone in the family, I have been one big histamine storm after another since I was two.  Asthma, Allergies, and skin problems were and are my daily struggle and although I have been greatly aided by my willingness to cleanse my liver and gall bladder and use alternative healing as much as possible, I still struggle with asthma and allergies.

I just went into my stats and realized that most of my top posts, in terms of traffic, for the past few years are all tied to vaccines.  People are looking for this information and want to educate themselves with the facts.  I thought it might be a good idea to link to my top twenty five posts to make it easier for you the reader to find this information.  With the debate raging in the Blogosphere over gardasil this past week my traffic has jumped exponentially and many new visitors are coming in for a look for the first time.

Since my Blog is dedicated to Healthy Families here are the top posts, most of which have to do with Vaccinations.

Baby number eight…Baba’s birth story!
Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim

Amani’s Birth Story
Born at Home
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
September 21, 2010

This time I was really excited about the upcoming birth of my baby.  My Saudi husband had really taken the time to study about pregnancy and birth and was ready to support me in my long-time dream of having a home birth!  We worked hard together during this pregnancy and became teachers of  natural childbirth classes.  I witnessed a transformation in my husband and I can’t even begin to explain just how much closer we have become!  This story is special because it’s from his perspective.

I hope you enjoy reading these birth stories.  Please let me know if you’d like to share yours. Now on to the story…Baby number eight..Baba’s birth story!…

Amani is an Arabic word which means “wishes.”  It’s the name we chose for our newborn baby girl.  The choice was made Sunday night, the 19th of September, 2010.  It was a family gathering and the kids were asking about the name of the baby we’re expecting soon.  So Aisha started to read through a list of names on the net.  The kids and I were commenting of how much we like or dislike the name as Mom went down the list.  Mom stopped at some names and commented that she liked them.  At one point, she stopped and said, “Amani, means wishes, it sounds nice and the meaning is warm.”  I replied, agreeing to her comments, saying it’s a name that I would like.

ICAN: Cesarean Rate Reaches (Another) Record High

 


Redondo Beach, CA, December 21, 2010 – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics has reported that the cesarean rate hit another record high in 2009, with a preliminary rate of 32.9 percent. The findings reflect the 13th consecutive year of increase. This rate roughly equates to 1,359,105 out of the 4,131,019 births in the United States in 2009 resulting in a cesarean.

“Cesareans are far from the niche occurrence of yesteryear. Every woman in her childbearing years MUST sit up and take notice of this alarming and astonishing rate of surgical delivery,” says ICAN President Desirre Andrews.
