"Almost every stage of obstetrical procedure in the hospital is part of the mechanism that enables the doctor to create his own pathology."---Robert Mendelsohn M.D
[''Obstetrics is the surgical specialty dealing with the care of women and their children during pregnancy (prenatal period), childbirth and the postnatal period. Midwifery is the non-surgical equivalent. Almost all modern obstetricians are also gynaecologists. Gynaecology is the medical practice dealing with the health of the female reproductive system.'' In the USA, 54% of doctors involved in the delivery or care of infants perform Circumcision (1998), approximately 96% without anesthesia, United States and Canada . The breakdown is: obstetricians 46%, family practitioners 29% and pediatricians 25%. 1 ]

[2020 Dec] Why do Obstetricians Still Rush to Clamp the Cord? By Dr. Mercola Cord clamping has become the accepted norm so much so that delayed clamping is generally considered a new or unproved intervention.

“An obstetrician is like a fireman. They both rush in and save lives. The only difference is: the fireman didn’t start the fire.” – Ruth Lockshin, Dr. Mendelsohn’s daughter, 2014 http://thepeoplesdoctor.net
The Midwife Is In · It is vital to remember that gynecology was invented by
a torturing slave owner and that the instruments and tools of gynecology reflect
that. [look up Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey, the slaves he experimented on] The
exam table is a method of dehumanizing patients, taking everything out of the
view of the provider except for the vulva and vagina. The process of using
stirrups takes power and strength away from the patient, making them feel like
they're falling off the table and focusing on trying to stay afloat rather than
recognizing what is being done to them and deciding whether or not they consent
to the exam. @feministmidwife first started talking publicly about not using
stirrups a few years back and I credit her with the shift in practice that is
slowly, glacially happening.
Research re-confirms what we know - pelvic exams only help in specific situations. We don't need to "take a look and make sure everything is ok" we don't need to "just check" in the vagina. Speculum and bimanual exams are only needed for very specific scenarios and using them for other reasons is abusive. I take pride in bringing conscientiousness, respect for individuality, an attempt at anti-racism, anti-classism, a broader understanding of gender, and a general love for my patients to my practice.

They are expelled rather roughly and usually taken away from their mother, which is wrong. It's physiologically/psychologically wrong. Both baby and mother need each other more at that time than they ever will again. The baby should be put to nurse at his mother's breast whereupon it induces an enormous number of wonderful changes in the mother, such as an arresting of the postpartum hemorrhage, which no obstetrician can do under the circumstances, but a baby can do. Which indicates that there is more intelligence in the upper and the lower lip of one baby than all the brains of all the obstetricians put together. Ashley Montagu Interview by Michael Mendizza
In 1982, the state of California completed the largest study ever undertaken on the root causes of crime and violence. The number one cause was found to be medical interference with childbirth in our hospitals.---Joseph Chilton Pearce
There is no doubt in my mind….that a large proportion of brain-injured and learning disabled children are the result of obstetric drugs….Most women are unaware that obstetric drugs diminish the supply of oxygen to the unborn baby’s brain and can result in brain damage.---Diana Korte

Vit K  Lets try to clear up the "Vitamin K" shot/Drops' question once more The chance of your child developing leukaemia from the Vitamin K shot is estimated to be about one in 500 (MIDIRS Midwifery Digest, Vol 2 #3, September 1992)...The bleeding condition the Vitamin K shot is supposed to prevent occurs at a rate that is far lower (in a non-Vitamin K injected child) than the rate of occurrence of leukaemia. The haemorrhaging condition may occur in approximately 1 in 10,000 live births....The authors found a nearly two-fold risk of leukaemia in children who had received either form of vitamin K. These findings were extremely worrying. Golding calculated that the extra cases of leukaemia caused by vitamin K increase could be as many as 980 in the UK alone.
