This is another great example of why unassisted childbirth is best for mother and child.
This is a short, silent clip of another hospital birth video. Hospital childbirths are always disturbing and here is another great example. First of all, notice the birthing position. The poor mother is nothing more than a vagina to the staff. The modern medical model of childbirth is the ultimate objectification of women. Make no mistake about it. You see the poor mother’s head peek over her stomach once to see what is going on. Also notice the blood. You rarely see that in a homebirth.
The second thing you should notice about this childbirth video is the way the birth attendant holds the poor baby upside down by its feet while she deprives it of much needed blood and oxygen by clamping the cord prematurely. Are these people monsters? Are they just brainless? I just don’t get it!! Does anyone think about the poor baby? Who holds a baby by its feet? WHO?? What a welcome to the world.
