I Am Sacred Mother

There is no such thing as an UNCO-OPERATIVE patient.

There is no such thing as an UNCO-OPERATIVE patient.

She was labelled “unco-operative” - in her labour, just afterwards and the label remained the following morning on the ward round....I was at her labour. I know what happened. 

She was not un-co-operative. She is not a piece of property to manage. She was primal in her labour as every woman should be.  

15 differences between home and hospital births – that they don't tell you

15 differences between home and hospital births – that they don't tell you

I am a homebirth doctor. I have attended many hospital and homebirths.

I had my baby at home before I worked and studied in hospitals. My homebirth experience was very different from what I was trained to do and practiced at the hospitals.

When I was working as a homebirth doctor with other independent midwives I noticed again – so many innate and important differences that happen at homebirths that are not done at hospitals births and others that are done routinely in hospital births but do not happen routinely in homebirths.

Here are a few (based on my personal experience):

A Postnatal Ward Round on Sunday

A Postnatal Ward Round on Sunday

I was at work to see the postnatal patients. My hours were 8am-12pm and there were a total of 32 postnatal beds. That means 8 minutes per patient (if they were full). Which is possibly do-able....if everyone's vitals, symptoms and state is perfect and does not require any further questioning or tests. 

The Birth of a Sacred birthkeeper

The Birth of a Sacred birthkeeper

Birth and motherhood hold a profound opportunity for self-empowerment and growth. The opportunity to touch and imbibe a divine aspect of Mother Nature that is pure, sacred and richly connected with Mother Earth's depths of wisdom, nurturing and healing. Once you hold this in your being it is immovable, secure and tangible.

This is my journey to realizing and knowing this truth.

Thoughts on Conception

Thoughts on Conception

What if I told you that YOU could influence the type of soul you invite into your womb at conception? 

What if I told you – you could influence his or her consciousness, character and values, his or her likes and dislikes, fears and loves, insecurities and ways of interacting?

How a medical doctor becomes a Sacred Holder of Birth

How a medical doctor becomes a Sacred Holder of Birth

It is not common for a doctor to have a homebirth....nor is it common to find a doctor who will support sacred births - at home or otherwise. This is my story of how my homebirth changed my life to become a Sacred Birth Supporter, lover, practitioner! 

Dignity is a basic human right in Childbirth too

 Dignity is a basic human right in Childbirth too

I have seen racism, rudeness and force by the head of departments. I have seen disregard for consent. I have seen midwives joke and poke and stare at various vulva’s when the mother is conscious and her head is behind the screen in preparation for a caeserian section.

Don't Let Them Take Your Newborn!

Don't Let Them Take Your Newborn!

When a mother embraces her newborn baby, her third child to her chest with deep loving affection and relief, a few minutes old and you witness the most precious time in a life, and she says "this is the first time I am seeing a newborn"...you wander what is so wrong with the system that she did not have this with her first 2?
