Induction Seduction

Induction Seduction

"Induction is sometimes necessary and life saving. Other times it is just a routine part of a crazy trend." Pam England, author Ancient Map for Modern Birth.

You know as well as I do, that a baby born when he or she is ready is the smartest way to go when giving birth (with normal, healthy conditions). Imagine you're told that for the safety of your baby it's wisest to go ahead and induce labor - do you really know everything you need to know about that process in order to mindfully and from your heart, say yes?

Listen closely ladies, there's more to the story - and the decision - than a simple yes or no! Induction seduction is running rampant in our culture and our birthing mother's and their children are the ones most deeply effected!

It's safe to say that the majority of women don't really know the ins and outs of induced labor. It's a common assumption that is must be safe or it wouldn't happen as often as it does! And though it is true that in some not-so-usual situations it can indeed be the best thing, as a common practice an induced labor is most often accompanied by a cascade of intervention.
