Dear Mama Tao:
Help me learn. Ever since we hooked our computer up to the internets (used previously only for un-schooling materials, OF COURSE. Duh.), I have been able to do SO much research on your site. But I am wondering if you could answer a question about the Cascade of Interventions (TM)? One of the things I have learned from researching is that merely setting foot inside a hospital guarantees the C of I (TM). I read it on MDC, so it must be true.
Still, I meekly admit that I brought my first two spawn Earthside within the walls of these dens of iniquity and horror. AND it was a University hospital--you know, the places where the only thing birthed naturally is the Great Conspiracy that enfolds Evil Golf-Playing Doctors, Nurse Ratchets, and Intervening Medwives.
Even so, I somehow, miraculously, it would seem, defied fate and experienced my first two births WITHOUT the C of I (TM). AND for one of those I even consented, weakly and in ignorance, to Poison/Pitocin AND AROM. And now I'm confused. Does the C of I (TM) really exist? I admit I lived long in the darkness of utter ignorance about normal birth, and now I know better that the only right way is intervention-free UC. But I need to solve this one lingering doubt. My healing depends upon it. Mother Tao, you have such obvious cosmic wisdom. Can you set me straight?
I have read over your letter many times now and am not sure how to respond. How exactly should one reply when faced with a supposed fan who can lie so boldly and in public no less!
The fact that you say you gave birth without the Cascade of Interventions (TM) is a statement of such dishonestly it makes me jiggly in my legs to even type it!
It is simply impossible for a woman to have ANY type of natural birth in the hospital...
You ma'am are a liar and fraud!
