My spiritual beliefs have evolved and changed over the years, but the idea of forgiveness is still critical to how I walk through life. A simple Google search about any one of these topics will provide more information than you could ever want. While there is no definitive “causal link,” enough has been found to warrant further research and precautionary measures.

There are things I have done for which I know God forgives me. According to this article, “Research shows populations exposed to ultrasound have a quadrupled perinatal death rate, increased rates of brain damage, nerve cell demylienation, dyslexia, speech delays, epilepsy and learning difficulty.” Sound familiar?

Six days later, he had developed an upper respiratory infection and the ear infection was worse.

With naturally-paced contractions, there is a time interval between contractions allowing for the baby to be fully oxygenated before the next contraction.

In induced or enhanced labor, the contractions are closer together and last for a longer time, thus shortening the interval where the baby receives the oxygen supply.

Reduced oxygen to the baby in labor has life-long consequences on the baby’s brain function.” 5) C-Section – George Malcolm Morley, OB/GYN has done extensive research regarding C-Sections and autism and has concluded that, “A baby born by C-section is 3-4 times more likely to have autism.” His theory is that it is probably due to ICC (immediate cord clamping) and there are really good reasons to think he may be right.

There are so many different elements that play a part in C-sections, however, that it is really hard to determine exactly which specific aspect is problematic: anesthesia, maternal immobility, labor trauma, cord clamping, post-op drugs or lack of friendly bacteria due to bypassing the vaginal canal are all suspect individually.

It is painful normally, but it was practically unbearable while I was pregnant.

My OB prescribed Lortab telling me that it didn’t cross the placenta and was perfectly safe.

While I didn’t know there was mercury in the Coke, I have to be honest and admit that OF COURSE I knew that eating and drinking junk wasn’t good for my baby.

3) Lortab/Acetaminophen while pregnant – I have Fibromyalgia.

I was in so much pain that I wasn’t about to look into this further.
