Positivity is Power (also: A BIRTH CRIME)


Todd Gastaldo

A BIRTH CRIME... See below.

First this...


Karen E. Pape, MD has a GREAT "Positivity is Power" site for those whose babies are affected by the
birth crime discussed below! http://www.tascnetwork.net/karenpapemd.asp

Attention Karen (via [email protected]):

I am POSITIVE that as more people learn about the birth crime discussed below, your profession will
stop committing it!

I am also positive that it is a fraud to fail to take simple educational steps to prevent that which
you treat.

Karen, please help me stop the birth crime.

Note: From the perspective of BABIES, working to end the obvious birth crime is indeed POSITIVITY -
but "birth professionals" who are closing birth canals (and their colleagues and some parents
whose babies have been born with birth injuries!) might try to pretend it's negativity -
better left undiscussed. I disagree of course.


"My knees were pushed back behind me but never to my stomach...I was almost sitting up...[My baby]
did get stuck...[My OB] panicked and did all the wrong things, including walking away from the scene
of...the crime she inflicted on my [baby]..." --Marie (a pseudonym) to Gastaldo


Marie (a pseudonym) - just quoted - indicated to me that she is suing her obstetrician...

OPEN LETTER (archived for global access at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2280)

(ALL women suing their obstetricians may be interested in what I have to say to Marie.)


If you haven't already, PLEASE give the following information to your attorney...

From your phrase "almost sitting up," it sounds like your OB had you on your sacral tip senselessly
closing your birth canal up to 30%.

(Pulling the legs back while semisitting used to be (may still be) called "the Bradley Classic" -
this is how it was labelled in the Student Workbook for the American Academy of Husband Coached

Marie, if you *were* on your sacral tip - it doesn't matter how far your knees were pushed back -
your OB performed "proper" (BAD) McRoberts maneuver - which keeps the birth canal closed.

Senselessly closing the birth canal up to 30% is obvious criminal negligence which sometimes
escalates to criminally negligent homicide - i.e. - some babies die.

Birth-canal-closing "proper" (BAD) McRoberts is pictured in the 2001 edition of Williams Obstetrics.
It is also recommended in the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists'/ACOG shoulder
dystocia video as a means of opening the birth canal maximally when the shoulders get stuck - which
is an indirect admission by MDs that they are *knowingly* closing birth canals most of the time.
(Birth trauma attorneys: See IMPORTANT NOTE below.)


IMPROPER (GOOD) McRoberts maneuver is done with the head of the bed flat. The mother is rolled OFF
her sacral tip so that it can move back out of the way of the baby. One author said that the woman's
knees are rolled back to her ears so that her vagina is pointing up - as if she will be launching an
astronaut into space from her vagina. The point is, IMPROPER (GOOD) McRoberts gets women off their
sacra. "Proper" (BAD) McRoberts does not.

NOTE: BAD McRoberts is referred to as "proper" because Robert Gherman, MD fraudulently said
McRoberts was being done "properly" as he used BAD McRoberts maneuver - as he radiated
fetuses to cover-up the crime.

See IMPROPER McRoberts can save tiny lives and tiny limbs... http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-


In 2000, the 1995 ACOG shoulder dystocia video mentioned above was ruled exempt from the hearsay
rule - admissible in court - in Costantino v. Herzog...

See James Nocon, MD, JD (Also: Dateline NBC: Marsden Wagner, MD
v. ACOG (Sunday, Sept. 16) http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/1291

FINAL NOTE: Both semisitting and dorsal lithotomy - the two most common delivery positions - close
the birth canal up to 30%.

In addition to routinely closing birth canals up to 30%, MDs often GRUESOMELY manipulate babies'
spines (push with oxytocin; pull with forceps/vacuums) with the birth canal senselessly closed
up to 30%.

An estimated six babies per day DIE from vacuum-assisted spinal manipulation alone - with birth
canals senselessly closed up to 30%.

See USUAL MECHANISM (PS5) in my article, "Pregnant chiro patients: BIZARRE chiro legislation -
babies be damned..." http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-list/message/2135

MDs and MBs: If you must push or pull - and sometimes you must - first get women off their sacra
(off their backs.butts.bums).

All birth trauma attorneys should be presenting this information to juries.

If anyone knows of a birth trauma attorney presenting this information to a jury - please
contact me.
