FYI, after I clicked the FB Like thing on this post and went back to my FB wall, it said "Sarah likes Example Web Page" (instead of TheUnnecesarean's link) and when I clicked on the "Example Web Page" hyperlink, it did not link back to your post but rather gave a "page not found" link. IDK where the problem is (Facebook or what).

I'm writing a twelve page persuasive research paper about unnecessary c-sections! It's coming along SO well. Probably my favorite academic paper I've ever written.

a fellow Hypnobabies instructor recently underwent a procedure (I think) to find a new place for her pacemaker lead.... using only local anesthetic and Hypnobabies Eyes Open hypnosis techniques

"The heart procedure Tuesday afternoon went PERFECTLY. Dr. Blake was willing to let me use hypnosis for my anesthesia as long as things went well and they did! "
and later
"She then dismissed the anesthesiologist, thoracic surgeon, OR, and 2 units of blood that were all waiting in the wings."
come check out her shared story!

Also I found an article that says a substance found in breastmilk kills 40 types of cancer cells

Wow, over 600 likers in under an hour, but no comments! I'm eating pasta with tilapia and crab on top, with some white wine. YUM.

What will it take to wake up America to the cesarean epidemic? What will it take for mothers to be to start educating themselves with something besides "What to Expect When Your Expecting?"

Maybe when we are all paying for it through nationalized health care. A $12,000 section vs. a $3,000 vaginal birth. About 25% of all health care cost are maternity costs. It's everybody's business now.

Mommymichael, I wish I had been a better Hypnobabies student. Reading stuff like that blows my mind. I just did the fear release stuff, which I loved, but maybe I should go back now and figure out how to do all of the finger drop or finger tap or whatever it's called stuff. Just in case I'm ever... in need of self-hypnosis, I guess?

Stassja, I don't know what's up with the 600+ likes. I really should understand the "Like" thinger more.

Did everyone adjust their Facebook privacy settings, by the way? There's that one "Allow" box that has to be unchecked...
