Making Childbirth in America Healthier & Saner
With our guest, Vanita Lott, we’ll be examining the Unnecessary Cesarean Epidemic, the need to focus on more health and wellness in maternity care, dangers of the over-use of technology in birth, some side-effects/dangers of epidurals, the need to remain flexible about birth plans, and Vanita’s best recommendations for a holistic birth!
Dangerous and Unecessary Cesareans
Yes, Cesareans can be lifesaving but our epidemic of “Unnec-Cesareans” is dangerous. Many people are not aware of the risks to mother and baby from “birth by scalpel.” Understand the influence of big business that is creating the U.S. birth assembly line. The national organization of Ob/Gyns acknowledges that changing the attitudes of obstetricians to lower Cesareans will be “challenging.”
How Birth, Money and Theater Met
In the early 17th century, the invention of forceps was a great advance for childbirth and gratefully saved many women’s and babies’ lives. As doctors became more involved with birth they began to interfere with normal labors. The medical profession has a financial motivation to exaggerate dangers and increase women’s anxiety during prenatal care and in the birth room.
Primary Cause of Cesarean Epidemic
The majority of U.S. hospital births are happening today during normal business hours.

A Midwife’s Calling
Don’t Panic, if Your Food’s Organic!
Consuming non-organic foods in pregnancy have been associated with more miscarriages, birth defects and even stillbirths. Learn the “Dirty Dozen” foods that carry high pesticide levels and the “Clean Fifteen” that are less important to eat organic.
Birth Technology often not Scientific
The routine use of electronic fetal monitors as well as other birth technologies in normal pregnancy are not scientifically sound and fetal monitors are well-known to to make “Unnec-Cesareans” skyrocket.
Don’t Push! The Doctor’s Not Here!
It is not unusual for nurses to tell a woman not to push because the doctor hasn’t arrived yet. Women think this is because the baby would clearly be in danger. It is professionally advised in nursing textbooks that this should never be done. A Nurse-Midwife tells about a physician admitting he is concerned if he misses a birth because a woman once refused to pay him!
Cell Phones and Miscarriage
Cell phone and EMF radiation needs to be further researched to understand their affect on pregnancy and babies in the womb.
The Great American Obstetrician Experiment
The U.S. 120 year experiment of having doctors, who are also surgeons, be the primary birth attendants of healthy women with healthy pregnancies, has been a leading cause of our dangerous epidemic of Cesareans.
