Let Birth Gently Unfold.

A poem. Or piece of spoken word.


You can watch me speak it HERE







So - I'm here to share all the things THEY don't tell you


It should ALL be common knowledge


And yet, it's hidden - in full-view



My target - To slay?



The "routine stretch and sweep"


A maternity service that makes MY skin creep




Separating the membranes of the uterine sac


And widening your cervix as you lay on your back



Telling your body - "These fingers will help you"


Mammals don't need THAT, not pets, livestock or zoo!




A standard practice conducted without medical cause


When you hear "RISKS & CONSEQUENCES"


Take a Step Back - Breathe - Pause!




THINK of your body's innate capacity


For conception and growing and birthing - IN SAFETY




Ask..


"WHY Intervention?"


"Why RISK"


"Why INTRUDE"




Because a baby is 'LATE'?


How rude!




Late? They are not. They are ALWAYS on time



Like Gandalf


And Big Ben


And birds that fly south ~


Grant BABIES capacity to define FULL-TERM growth




Some will take 40


Others 42 weeks


Some wont be ready for 308 sleeps



The message we send them


And us in the process..


Of putting fingers in vaginas and inviting the propress




is..




We know better than you do


You're broken - Need help!


Shush now - Let us sweep you


Shush now - Don't yelp!




It's sinister in reality - I'm not just making it so


The procedure is outdated - Lacks evidence - MUST GO!




Ofcourse - except on occasions medical intervention is called for


But that's NOT where we started and THAT'S NOT what I'm here for




I'm here to share some of the things they don't tell you


With healthy mothers and babies


To call for change.


THIS we CAN do!




In order to perform this procedure of theirs, YOUR LABOUR must have already started!


You see - You cant stretch a cervix that's not effaced and at least a BIT parted.




"Only 1 or 2 cm" -- ???



Your baby is on it's way!!!



To a natural, gentle, physiological birth - YAY!




So why intervene, when it's already happenin'


REST. REALX. Ready!


You babe IS soon arrivin'




Did you know that those fingers carry risk of infection?


Break Potective Waters?


Cascade Intervention?




Were you asked for permission?


Informed of the risks?


For ALL medical practice - The very basics are THIS




And if they haven't?


They can't so so.


YES! You're catching my drift.


You CAN say no to 'that' midwife


No stretching THIS shift.




MY baby is comfy


MY baby is SAFE


bringing her earthside is not some egg and spoon race?!



They're not ALL ready in unison - cooked right the way through


Only 4% of babies arrives the day they were due!




So, the chances of hurting the mum and her babe


Increase every. Single. Time. We. Invade.


A plethora of interventions ride this cascade!




Not simply infection and waters that break


But others and worse are the chances we take



When we HOP ON THAT bed - and DO AS WE'RE TOLD


Intrude on a process MILLENIA old





I say:




"Back OFF from MY cervix - Let MY birth gently UNFOLD!"
