45% of births in the US are now induced, but evidence supporting this intervention is severely lacking. Case controlled studies show no benefit to inducing for postdates. Routinely inducing for postdates is based on 3 uncontrolled, retrospective studies showing 1/1000 less stillbirths while ignoring possible increases in brain damage to newborns as a result of induction.

Medicine has had a way of treating infants and babies like mini-adults, in this case seeking to vaccinate babies over 2.2 lbs. Is it any wonder that preterm infants are at 5x greater risk for autism, syndromal evidence of chronic brain inflammation?

Skin to skin contact between the mother and her new-born baby can have impressive healing and even life-saving effects for the infant.

Written by Sayer Ji, Founder
