"FAILURE TO PROGRESS" AND WHY LABOR OFTEN STALLS IN HOSPITALS




It is a well-known fact that many birthing women lock up in fear as soon as they enter a hospital environment. The bright lights, harsh sounds, toxic antiseptic smells, and energy of fear and technology all contribute to extreme discomfort in the primal brain of a birthing woman. Her totally normal response to this frightening and alien environment is called "stalled labor."

This short video is extremely clever in revealing another important reason why it is often challenging for women to open up and give birth in a hospital -- i.e., NO PRIVACY!!!
