SF talked about this in another thread, so I just wanted to throw it up here:
Wow. Let's make sure that these pregnant women have to pay as much as they possibly can for their labor, not just monetarily, but in every way.
Goddamn them for getting pregnant, but at the same time, make sure that they keep their babies, at all cost, whether they want to or not.
This is the fucking country that we live in. What bullshit.
And here's an interesting commentary on this:
VIVA HOME BIRTH.
FUCK THE "MAN."
If I hadn't had a homebirth, I would have had a C-section within four hours of my labor. Because I had a CPM (lay midwife), I labored for forty hours, drug free, and had a healthy, 10 pound baby.
Unlike these so-called "professional" midwives (CNMs) who assist with hospital births, and can literally get this certification online, my midwife (CPM), who they refer to as a "lay midwife" did three years of schooling at Birthingway college, with an apprenticeship, as all of the CPMs there are required to do.
Professional my ass.
