If I had gone to a midwife instead of a very astute doctor, or even went to a less astute doctor, my child would probably not be alive right now. Every family needs to make the choice that is best for them. If my child or I was in danger at any time, my midwives would have had us at a hospital with...

I meant no offence to you personally. It's just that I do not believe either of these practises are wise decisions.


Ok. I wasn't sure where the conversation was going.

I have no prob w/ ppl home schooling, but I am not one who can handle that.

Is the homebirthing lobby also the homeschooling lobby?


What?

Just because I homebirth does not mean I home school.

Homebirth is like representing yourself in court- it's permissable but inadvisable.


We're gonna disagree on this topic.

I think he was frustrated with the extreme difficulty of the delivery. I would be too.


So was the mother, I'm sure.

At least the mother agreed to go to a hospital instead of attempting a home birth.


Are you commenting on this specific case or homebirth in general?

Why would anyone do this? Human breast milk is suitable only for human infants. Exactly. Anyone with a developed palate will hurl if you feed them breast milk. It tastes freaking awful, and certainly would not work in an ice-cream. To re-iterate.. it tastes f***ing disgusting. I cannot stress this ...

If a woman is in labour for three days, trying to give birth for three days, something is obviously wrong. Now I've seen the mom & baby in the picture, and the baby doesn't look like he'd obstruct the birth canal for a 72 hours before being born. He is no elephant baby. In fact he looks borderl...

I had a very hard time talking to my parents when I was a kid and writing things down did not make it better. :( But then, my parents did not know I have asperger's. Can you write it down? Writing or typing things out now helps. When my son is trying to talk to us I try to be patient and tell him, "...

Get rid of that nurturing instinct of yours. It's making you think wrong. Ya, that darn nurturing instinct can be problematic sometimes. We've ended up with too many pets and house full of kids due to that instinct. However, I don't think it makes me think wrong. It makes me pay very close attentio...

The symptoms he displays are not indicative of PTSD. PTSD would be further withdrawl, anxiety, things like that. He does not exhibit any anxiety or anything like that. But you said he does get anxious and he withdraws after seeing his birth mother and he does get anxious if his routine is messed up...

We're facing similar issues w/ our 8 yr old Aspie. I vote for General Anesthesia. We tried the gas, he wouldn't have it. He didn't even want the numbing gel in his gums. So we tried the papoose board (with his consent) and he didn't like that, either. So we voted for general. We're still trying to c...

PTSD would definitely be a concern and something to explore. I wouldn't discount an ASD, though. Maybe keep it in mind on the back burner.

I hope the best for Jordan & his sibling that's not born yet. How sad. :(

That's a good post, Gavin. If the mother does not bottle feed, you can still connect with the baby. Just do what Gavin said, minus the bottle. I do not bottle feed so my husband will take the baby and play with him or just hold him. It means I can get a shower or run to Starbucks for a coffee if I w...
