|This just kinda reeks of "play the blame game" and, usually, the blame comes back on the mom (for getting an epidural, getting ultrasounds, not taking baby in the sun enough, allowing vaccines, etc). As a mom of a child with autism (and my sis is AllyRae so my nephew also has autism) this kind of thinking/implications just sucks.|
They are MORE than happy to share the risks of a VBAC but are usually quiet when educating about the risks of pitocin, epidurals, and c-sections.
Until there is ONE epidemiological study following sectioned babies for auto-immune and neurological disorders compared with those babies that were home-birthed or birthed at birth centers with no interventions, including antibiotics, we are blind. That study would make my job ALOT easier.
