  1. Hi! I came across your blog because I also blogged about Orgasmic Birth, and it was one of the “related links” from WordPress under my post. Anyway, I was intrigued by the post titles there, since I also don’t like vaccinations, etc., so I’ve been browsing, and really like your blog.

    As far as the GD goes, Henci Goer has some really good stuff at her website ( and then click on “articles”– but I won’t put it in as a link because WP tends to send comments with links in them to spam).

    I’m assuming you’re going to be giving birth in the hospital with a CNM, or if your GD gets worse, bumped to an OB so definitely will be a hospital birth. Regardless of who your birth attendant will be (although they have some authority to change things), it would be a good idea to find out from your hospital what being diagnosed as GD will mean for you during labor and for your baby after birth. Some hospitals have protocols that will surprise and maybe even shock you, and it would be good to know which ones are necessary and which are just done without having been shown or proven to work well. Some hospitals require your baby to be given numerous blood draws, to not be breastfed for a time (to test fasting blood sugar, or given a “standard” sugar-water solution to see how his blood sugar reacts to it, or something like that), and will keep him in the nursery for maybe several hours after birth. Possibly for no good reason whatsoever. And during labor, you also maybe subjected to numerous blood draws, while being prevented from eating, but given a glucose solution as well. If your hospital has certain protocols in place, it would be a good thing to research the science behind the protocol — just like you’ve done with the vax — and see if you and your baby are being considered guilty (of having high blood sugar) before being proven innocent. Even if you find good reason (in general or at least in your particular case) for certain things to be done, it will probably make you feel better and more at ease during labor and after birth to know what is going on and why they are doing what they are doing. I can only imagine the feelings I would have if all of a sudden they started jabbing me or my baby with a lancet to take blood if I wasn’t prepared for it.
