Amazing that we need to sign a pledge to allow nature to do do what nature does, but alas it does seem like we need to promise to so here it is. I strongly believe and promote natural child birth.
Please support this!
What is the rush? I went to 41+4 with my first and I am currently 40+2 with this little bean :)
Take the pledge to go the full 40! It really does make a difference!
"the right baby in the right time".
I would suggest give her at least 42weeks as our way of calculating due dates is very dubious :) But 40 weeks is a good start I suppose.
This is terrific! No more " I don't want to be pregnant any more " inductions!
so difficulft for many women intimidated by professionals. The last birth I attend was of a lady that was told that she had to be induced because the placenta was bad! She gave birth with 41 weeks beautifully at home.
I know, Mary Zwart, I know... The psychological terrorism of a bad placenta, of the insufficient amniotic fluid, of a too big baby... Poor women...
I was told all those things except the too big of baby part, they were telling me my baby could lose weight in utero! I did lots of my own research so I called B.S. on all their pressure techniques, but the Dr's manner made the last 12 days (post date) incredibly stressful which is not what a mama needs before birth.
40, or 41, or 42, or 43, or more... don't presume all babies take the same time to be ready. I have had three baby girls, all at different gestations of their OWN choosing and timing. One at 42, one at 41+5 and one at 42+2. Good friend of mine only just had her babe this month, at 45 weeks!
I went to 43+1
My older son was born at 42 weeks..... he took his time being born.....I made sure that the birth was his own, not the Dr. nurses or hospital schedule.... I'm happy that I did.
