"Natural" Hospital Birth is Not an Option
Because every universe is subject to its own laws.
The idea of “choice” in the context of hospital birth or industrial homebirth, is profoundly misunderstood.
Yes, we always get to choose.
And by showing up at the hospital when your birth sensations begin, or by hiring a government midwife to come to your home, you have automatically made the choice to limit the choices available to you, to among only those choices that exist within the boundaries of the world you have chosen to enter—boundaries that preclude physiological birth.
Every universe possesses its own indelible laws.
The universe of industrial birth—whether enacted in the hospital, or imported into your home by one of its agents—is its own vortex, cast by its own resonant framework of belief, assumption, and possibility.
By oscillating with the frequency of industrial birth, you are choosing to be subject to its laws.
By becoming the one who participates in that world, who exists within the resonant field of that world, you have inevitably contracted into the internal ordinances of that world.
Because of the reality I have constructed for myself and my babies, in accordance with the world I have chosen in alignment with my Being, I can have anything I want for my births, as long as what I want (or think I want) is consonant with the laws of the vortex of the universe I have chosen to occupy—
—except the choice to have a nurse tell me the story that my baby is malpositioned.
—except the choice to have a doctor tell me my baby is “late”.
—except the choice to create the story that I need fetal monitoring.
—except the choice to have a midwife put her hands inside my vagina.
—except the choice to believe that I needed surgery.
—except the choice to believe that my midwife “saved” me.
—except the choice to believe that the choice to enrol in the world of industrial birth is anything but the choice to submit to an authority other than my own.
—except the choice to believe that most of the interventions that women are offered (and which they accept) from within the world of institutional medicine, arise from anything other than the choice (freely made) to be subordinated.
Those choices are simply not available to me, given the universe I have selected in which to dwell, from which I create the fabric, texture, and expression of my life.
On account of my commitment to the particular Cosmic geography of belief that my Being has entrained to, I don’t have to suffer any of the risks or the detriments in having the option of the above choices being made available to me.
They simply don’t exist on the menu.
But I also don’t get to enjoy any of the perks of those choice, either—of which there are many.
Yes. We get to have anything we want.
You can make all of your own decisions.
We “create our own reality.”
And we can only ever “create reality” within the ambit of the reality from which we are creating.
This is the paradox of existence.
Choice does not occur in a vacuum, or outside of the parameters we invariably impose on the possibilities made available to us through every prior choice that led to this one.
What we want and how we choose will always be structured first by who we know ourselves to be, and the world we permit ourselves to occupy.
All worlds are their own vortex of resonance and vibration.
The world of industrial birth is precisely calibrated in order to preclude, eclipse, and obliterate the kaleidoscopic, hallucinogenic, entheogenic, galactic world of spontaneous, physiological, autonomous birth.
Those who are selling the idea that physiological birth (or “natural” birth) can happen in the hospital, are revealing their resonance with and adherence to the paradigm of the technocrat, the cyborg, and the slave.
You are always free.
You are free to choose where you reside.
You are free to put yourself in a position in which your choices will be dictated to you according to a technocratic hierarchy, just as you are free to choose to become the person who enters the vortex of a world in which your choices will be ordained according to the limitations (and risks, and gifts) of your own body, mind, soul, nature, and God.
