The Pink Kit

Discussion in 'Health and medical' started by Todd Gastaldo, Jan 29, 2004.

  1. THE PINK KIT (see below)...

    PREGNANT WOMEN: MDs and MBs (and many midwives - esp. CNMwives) are senselessly closing birth canals
    up to 30%. The two most common delivery positions - semisitting and dorsal lithotomy - close the
    birth canal up to 30%.

    Worse, when babies' shoulders get stuck (SHOULDER DYSTOCIA) MDs and MBs are KEEPING birth canals
    closed! See McRoberts maneuver discussion below.

    LADIES: You can easily OPEN your birth canal the "extra" up to 30%. See below.

    OPEN LETTER (archived for global access at: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2277)

    Dear Common Knowledge Trust:

    I skimmed your web site and saw no mention of the fact that standard woman-on-her-back delivery
    positions (semisitting and dorsal) close the birth canal up to 30%.

    Please make it abundantly clear to women that standard delivery positions close the birth canal
    up to 30%.

    Please tell women explicitly - right up front on your website that MDs are senselessly closing birth
    canals and it is EASY for them to create more room for their babies - up to 30% more room.

    Make this common knowledge on your website.

    See PREGNANT WOMEN at the very end of this post....

    My thanks to Mary on Erbscoollist for calling my attention to The Pink Kit.

    Thanks,

    Todd

    "The Goals and Objectives of [the Common Knowledge Trust] are to encourage the diverse health
    knowledge that comes from cultures worldwide...We are not seeking to blend modern health skills with
    culturally diverse ones..." http://www.commonknowledgetrust.com/why_how.htm

    I LIKE IT! Closing the birth canal is NOT a "modern health skill" that should be blended
    with ANYTHING!

    PS2 I also liked these cool Pink Kit topics!

    Pubic arch spread - 7 Movement of hips - 8 Important hip lift - 9 Sit bone spread - 10 Identifying
    sacral movement - 11 Rocking the sacrum - 12 Important sacral manoeuvre - 13 Moving the tailbone -
    14 Directed breathing into pelvis - 15 http://www.commonknowledgetrust.com/toc.htm

    Common Knowledge Trust: PLEASE REMEMBER: Tell women right up front on your web page: The sacrum
    CAN'T MOVE if the woman is sitting or lying on it (on her back.butt.bum)...

    This info should be made common knowledge ASAP.

    PS3 SIMPLE PROOF THAT MD-OBSTETRICIANS ARE **KNOWINGLY** CLOSING BIRTH CANALS UP TO 30%.

    The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist's/ACOG's Shoulder Dystocia video purports to
    tell MDs how to OPEN the birth canal when baby's shoulders get stuck - which obviously means that
    MD-obstetricians know they are closing birth canals.

    WORSE: The ACOG method for opening the birth canal when baby's shoulders get stuck (PROPER (bad)
    McRoberts) - actually keeps the birth canal closed!

    See IMPROPER McRoberts can save tiny lives and tiny limbs... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/1308

    FURTHER PROOF (that MDs know they are closing birth canals)...

    The British National Health Service/NHS West Midlands Perinatal Institute/WMPI (Jason Gardosi, MD,
    Director) writes of the semirecumbent delivery position (semisitting):

    "...the weight of the mother is in part taken on the sacrum which is therefore pushed upwards, thus
    decreasing the antero-posterior diameter of the pelvic outlet..."
    http://www.wmpi.net/reviews/oe/oe_shoulder_dystocia.htm

    OBSTETRIC SPINAL MANIPULATION CRIME

    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 again: How NOT to do McRoberts maneuver... http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/chiro-
    list/message/2258Todd

    PREGNANT WOMEN: To offer your baby the up to 30% "extra" - simply roll onto your side as you push
    your baby out!

    There are LOTS of "alternative" delivery positions that allow the birth canal to open maximally -
    kneeling, hands-and-knees, squatting, standing, etec.

    Talk to your MD or CNMwife NOW - before your delivery!

    BUT BEWARE: Some MDs and CNMwives may still close your birth canal (!), as in,

    "[M]ost doctors and [nurse] midwives are accustomed to the semisitting position...[T]hey may be
    willing to let you try other positions, if you ask...[But]...as you get close to delivery...[they]
    may ask you to move to [semisitting]..." [Simkin, P, Whalley J, Keppler, A. Pregnancy, Childbirth
    and the Newborn: The Complete Guide (Expanded and updated). Meadowbrook Press: Minnetonka, MN (dist.
    by Simon and Schuster). 2001:201]

    4.6% of "healthy" term babies are born with unexplained brain bleeds!

    And up to 3% of cephalic vaginal deliveries suffer shoulder dystocia!
    http://www.imfm.net/mfmtext/shoulder/index.htm

    LADIES: If your baby's shoulders get stuck inside you, do NOT let the MD pull with you on your
    back/butt, closing your birth canal.

    You should not have been on your back/butt closing your birth canal in the first place!

    It's sort of a chiropractic emergency.

    Please help stop MDs from closing birth canals.

    Please share this info with as many pregnant women as possible.

    Thanks,

    Todd
