Preemies Might Be Harmed By Plastic Used To Treat Them VIDEO.

A study by Johns Hopkins hospital found that pre-mature babies who need to live in an almost ‘fully plastic’ environment might be causing some serious harm. DHEP is the chemical found in the hospital care items used to keep pre-term babies alive, this is the same chemical that is banned in children’s toys, but not in hospitals– where we are supposed to feel safe.

DEHP is used to increase the flexibility of some plastic devices, and researchers found it in hospitals’ tubing, catheters, and fluid and blood product bags. Researchers said the infants’ greatest exposure came from the tubes placed in the babies’ airways for breathing support.

So what do to?

Here’s what the FDA has to say about it:

C-Section Never Again

C-section no more, mommy strength workouts for moms

The birth of a child is a miracle. It truly is.

I wouldn’t be here if it didn’t happen and neither would you. Or anyone for that matter. Or any other species.

When a child is brought into this world they have the potential ability to change the world–either positively or negatively. How s/he is raised by their parents or guardians, the environment, things they’re exposed to and such will shape their future– as well as a lot of other things. Life is never that simple.

It is precious. Some women can’t give birth, or can’t get pregnant, no matter how much they try or how much they spend.

So if you are pregnant now, or have already given birth, take a time out right now to say your blessings and give gratitude.

The Caesarean section is performed when a vaginal delivery would put either the baby or the mother’s life or health at risk. It is quite common, in the United States about 33% of all births, China about 46%.

Which leads me into the point of this post—-the C-Section. If giving birth is a miracle and such a blessing then why still call it a C-Section?

It states that a C-section or Caesarean is a surgical procedure to help deliver the baby.

Much like getting your tonsils removed or having a tumor removed, or getting a nose job.

No thank you!

You gave birth! A life is in this world now!

There is no other surgical procedure that can do such a thing. NOTHING!

And it’s not like everybody can do it. Like I said before some women will never give birth, either by choice or because they simply can’t do it. I can’t do it (not that I would want to—- I am a man :-)

This is your thing ladies. It’s not like any other surgical procedure or anything else you do in life. You went through 9 months carrying this baby inside of you only to have a ‘surgical procedure’ to remove it. Your body did all kinds of weird things to you, changed shape, put weight on, made you crave some weird stuff……. and on and on……….

You need to take a stand and start calling this miracle of birth a new name, something that it deserves. Not acting like a red-headed step child of a vaginal birth.

From now on, it’s a C-Birth!

Caesarean Birth.

Or simply– Miracle
