I wouldn't choose it first. I think that it's a sterile option, when you're in unexpected circumstances. Also, I assume it must have a religious/spiritual purpose as well. The combination of fire magic, with a dislike of using metal, and etc. I imagine it has almost ceremonial purposes. I would be more interested, if I could explore that avenue of it. But as it stands now, I would just cut it, if I didn't lotus.

I don't like going into birth blind, in an age where I shouldn't have to. My life, and that of my babe is too precious. I always get a late term scan. My home is very far from a hospital. Birth comes with many unforeseen risks as it is, if it's in my power to eliminate some foreseeable ones, then that is my responsibility as a mother to my baby, and the keeper of my own body. You have hired you midwife for a reason. If she is requesting a scan to better serve you...

Oooh, that looks nice and comfy.
