Pure Fiction II.

Hilary Butler - Thursday, October 16, 2008

To those offended by "Pure Fiction", it is not my intention to accuse vaccine defenders of fabricating information. It is my intention to point out key weaknesses in the manner in which very important issues are approached or presented. Continue Reading

Mothers overcome fear with natural prozac

"Ah yes. Strange title. In fact, Hilary, you have altered it somewhat...." That I have.  This stunner of an article in the Herald from Reuters had me shaking my head. We shouldn't be talking about mice: lets talk about mothers! Continue Reading

Film Review - "Orgasmic Birth"

Hilary Butler - Thursday, October 09, 2008

“Orgasmic Birth” is an awesome film, in the true sense of the word, talking to the deepest needs of women, at the gut, emotional, and intellectual level. In one sense, words fail me. The film follows home birthing parents growing and being reborn as different people, fulfilling their full potential of parenthood, and in particular womanhood. Interwoven are scenes of emotionally bereft, stark hospital births. This film confirmed what I’ve seen and known for so many years. The two systems can “birth” completely different families.  Continue Reading

Influenza vaccine - a mother's gift?

Hilary Butler - Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Today, the New England Medical Journal published a study hailing the influenza vaccine given to mothers, as a valuable protection to stop babies getting the flu. The study project from Bangladesh was called “Mother’s Gift”. A bit like Gardasil’s inventor’s medical article, before Gardasil was licenced, called, “God’s gift to women: The Human Papilloma Virus vaccine.” [PMID:16920633] The unwritten assumption emanating from both studies is that nothing stands between us, and the universal use of this vaccine.  Continue Reading

Sucking eggs - Mother's touch banishes pain

Hilary Butler - Tuesday, September 16, 2008

The Herald today has an article about how a mother’s love can show ways to banish pain. Yet again, scientists have “discovered” what those “sucking eggs” have known for a very long time… that certain types of touching alleviates pain. Yet, how many parents have been told in the past, to stop stroking their babies in neonatal units, because it “stimulates” the babies and causes them to waste energy? (Yes, I was told that). Now, we are told, as if we are totally stupid and didn't know it before, that stroking reduces pain and discomfort.  We are also told that this knowledge could lead to new treatments from chronic itching to depression. Continue Reading
