Comments On My Article

I wrote this article which was published in the birth matters magazine. I didn’t say anything wrong or misdirected and I didn’t tell any lies. A reply was published in the same magazine which was defensive and personal. It mentioned me by name several times, referred to my practice and totally missed the point of the original article.

Am I offended? NO

Am I a little pissed off? Well yes.

I don’t understand why it has become so personal when all I have done is tell the truth and outlined the facts as I see it.

When we have a maternity system that caters for women’s choice as made by totally informed and empowered pregnant women and unconditionally supported by birthing services I will continue to speak out again the injustice and idiocy of the bizarre medical model of care.
