.... I kinda knew that already but this ☝️ is just next level insanity.
WHY?!!! Why are they not allowing the use of water as pain relief?!??? 🤯
I had planned on giving birth to Bella in a birthing pool. In fact Hubby had the pool blown up and just needed water but I harnessed my inner goddess, went with instincts and gave birth to Bella on the bathroom floor. No drugs, no assistance, just her and me getting it done.
Our midwife arrived 15 minutes later, baby and I stayed and bonded on the floor for a while and after the cord was cut and the placenta was out, I asked Hubby to take Bella so I could go have a hot shower.
That hot shower was the only pain relief I had and to this day I remember how it soothed my aches and pains.
Labour is excruciating. It doesn't matter if it lasted 15 minutes or hours, it all hurts. Anything to help alleviate that pain especially if it's by natural means (ie. No drugs, no epidural) should be supported.
Everything about this Covid thing is pure insanity right now. So many things don't add up and make sense.
I'm with Dr.Cooper and definitely wondering about ulterior motives.
