That is how it started and the way it should be.
Big love to all the 40+ week-ers out there! I waited it out with my baby and she was born at home & in water at 43weeks 3days
I didn't get to 40 weeks, but it was due to my body naturally delivering at 37 weeks 3 days, not medical intervention. If I could have kept him in there for at least another week, if not the whole 40 weeks, I would have! :)
So important! Give your baby and your body the gift of time.
I think women rush pregnecy to much you ask them when are you do theyll say doctor says such a date but if i dont go by certain time im gonna be induced
Sense when do we have such a choice Baby will be here when its ready...
and once its here your gonna wonder if you can stick it back up there sometimes LOL LOL
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.
So true! Great info!
Just heard this on the radio today.
I've seen too too many elective inductions end up as a c-section and with babies in the NICU...ALL unnecessarily. If only they had waited. Better times are among us and nurses need to be advocates and voices for our little ones.
Lets influence our CNO & CEOs to not accept inductions and advocate on behalf of the patient to go 40 weeks!
