Saya pun tak pernah tahu masih ada orang yang mahu beranak dirumah kerana memikirkan keselamatan ibu dan bayi. Yerlah, zaman perubatan sekarang sangat penting bagi memastikan segalanya berada dalam keadaan terkawal dan jika ada kes kecemasan adalah alatan perubatan yang mencukupi.
But then, when i read Pn Ayuni punya status, it give me a different perspective. What she is fighting for is the medical ethics effect mothers psycology in giving birth to their babies. What i mean is that, oleh kerana banyak kes bermasalah, pihak2 perubatan yang mengendalikan proses beranak ini terlalu mudah membuat assumption dan memberikan prosidur standard mereka tanpa diberi penerangan yang jelas dan info sepatutnya kepada ibu-ibu. Ada juga yang mengambil kesempatan dengan mengenakan pelbagai prosidur tambahan untuk mendapatkan bayaran extra daripada pesakit yang sebenarnya kalau tidak dibuat pun lagi bagus untuk ibu dan anak tersebut. Contohnya pengambilan epidural yang dinihari semakin ramai ibu ditawarkan oleh pihak hospital swasta tanpa menerangkan kepada ibu effect yang akan dialami ibu selepas bersalin. Kita bersalin bertarung hanya 1hari, tapi sakit pinggang or tulang belakang adalah pada hari tua ibu nanti. Sepatutnya epidural ini hanya dilakukan kepada mereka yg benar2 memerlukan. Jadi, apa kah cerita anda ketika bersalin? Boleh contact FB Ayuni Zainudin untuk kita sama-sama memberi peringatan kepada Kementerian kesihatan dan Kementerian Pembangunan wanita dan keluarga mengenai perkara ini.
I can go on and on and tell the horror stories of my friends who have had terrible birth experiences with their babies but focusing on the problems without looking for the solution is not my philosophy. I was determined that I WILL NOT SUBJECT MY BABY AND MYSELF TO SUCH TREATMENTS. I WILL ONLY HAVE THE GENTLEST BIRTH FOR MY BABY AND ME. So I started to research on homebirthing option in Malaysia. After all, I am a homebirth baby myself and my mom who continued to have 5 more babies after me; 1 at home and 4 at the hospitals, readily told me the stark differences between hospital and home birthing.
So I gave birth finally after months of preparation. My big baby (according to the worried doctor who checked on his size and weight 2 days before I gave birth) was 3.5 kilos, born 55 hours after my water broke, 20 hours of mild contractions and 35 hours of intense contractions that would have cleansed me of all my previous sins, meconium staining throughout the labor which was helped by me drinking lof of water and urinating frequently.
He is 14 months old now and mothering is so easy despite what the rest said. I firmly believe that is because of my decision to do everything natural for him. He is still as pure as he had been the day he was conceived.
Had I gone to the hospital, my labor would have been cut short at 24th hour and I would have had a C-section when I could do it normally and naturally.
I wouldn't change a single thing about my baby's birth. I felt loved and cared about throughout the labor. Nobody shouted at me, nobody inserted their fingers in my vagina everytime they came into the room, nobody scared me by saying that the monitoring machine shows that my baby's heartbeats were dropping, nobody tried to 'save' our personal journey so that they wouldn't be sued.
I will do it 10 times over again.
Marikh's birth story: https://www.facebook.com/n
I was born in my grandmother's house in Kedah. So was my sister a year later. O...ur mother had the village midwife (bidan kampung) to assist her on both natural deliveries. I have always been proud to tell people I was a homebirth baby born in one of the most isolated villages in Kedah...
