    Evil? Twit? Seriously if Mia and this article really bother y'all that much then perhaps y'all need to get some Extra curricular activities outside of an anonymous Internet forum.

    Well, I can see why one would think freebirth was a bit full on. I am sure freebirthers are the first to say that it isn't for everyone?

    It is an opinion piece, I find it amusing that she was publicly flayed for having an opinion by women who seem to stand for feminism and peacefulness.

    And really = she is talking about women who come up to you and start asking you about your birth and looking down on it. Which happens. Why do people even do that? To play the injured party card is a bit rich - I have seen so many people on this site get flayed for their birthing choices, feeding choice, all the rest of it. It is so hypocritical!

    I really think some people need to look up the meaning of feminism.

    Or genuinely believing that a certain practice is dangerous?

    I actually read her article away from a forum. And calling her a twit hardly makes me someone who needs extra curricular activities.

    I call everyone i think is stupid a twit. I think a lot of authors who write newspaper articles are twits. And it doesn't bother me at all. I actually find it quite laughable at the stupidity

    Reading that article made me even more angry. And she's clearly against anything that doesn't involve a dr and a hospital. She talks about competitive birthing and judging, people are saying they don't care and don't judge, yet call women Birthzillas. And something goes wrong it's your fault for being a birthzilla?
    She was shocked to read about 4 deaths in a homebirth (that weren't freebirths) but how about we analyze babies deaths in hospitals, why aren't those ever discussed?
    If she was worried about our hospital system not being equipped to deal with homebirths, how about she advocates for them to be, so women can still have the choice.
    And I really hate when peope bring up 3rd world country standards and how these women would love our medical facilities. Really? The last documentary I saw they laughed at elective cesearians and didn't understand why a woman would choose to do that unless she was in serious danger.
    Our system is flawed and she keeps ignoring the reality of what women really go through in a hospital setting.

    I get what you are saying about hospital births, so much birth trauma occurs due to unnecessary medical intervention in birth.

    But - if my memory serves correctly - those 4 homebirth deaths were considered high risk and should have been managed at hospital. Perhaps that is what she was trying to put across. That sometimes homebirth just is not right for that particular woman at that particular time.

    Um hello I already posted earlier a link and a quote with her opinion on homebirths, she doesn't believe any women should have the choice to birth outside the 4 walls of a hospital.

    PS - If someone came up to me at a party and asked me how I "birthed my placenta" I'd want to poke them in the eye with a sausage too.

    She is entitled to her opinion, no matter if it is right or if anyone agrees with it.
