However, there is so much more to what medicalization gas done to the childbirth process. A con is that medicalization of childbirth this completely overlooks that there are patients who request for medical interventions prior to, or during childbirth. Conversely, a pro is that the feminist critique highlights a consequence of medicalization in that it removes women from the social event in which the mother is surrounded by friends, relatives, and continuous support. Fox and Worts show that women who avoid medical interventions actually rely on support from others in order to take on the additional responsibility of properly taking care of a child. When medical interventions take a play in a mother’s birthing experience it “offers support at arm’s length - to the body and nothing more - and withdraws abruptly following the delivery of a healthy baby.” In other words, medicalization can serve as a rude awakening to mother’s that the more long-term care and responsibility of caring for her child is left to the mother alone.

In the hospital, the doctor uses the medicines and procedures to allow the woman birth to be easier, but sometimes that process has effects on the baby.

It was also the touching time to the mother getting their baby on their hands. Through the video, I could get some knowledge and understand how hard and pain my mom was when she had my sisters and me.
"I think it plays into everybody’s practice, the morality of what we’re doing," she said, sipping a cup of green tea. Hard decisions always have to be made in medicine. These decisions include things as simple as whether or not to give a patient a minimally invasive surgery, and as complex as what to do in the case of a young girl becoming pregnant and wanting an abortion, against her parent's wishes or knowledge. I first became interested in the Hippocratic Oath after spending seven months researching medical ethics and fallibility of humans practicing medicine. While researching new medical practices, I stumbled across the text of the original Hippocratic Oath.

There are two kinds of midwives, an independent and a Certified Nurse Midwife.
In the early nineteen-hundreds, the American Medical Lobby was almost successful in stopping out its competition: Midwives. The Journal of the American Medical Association (AMA) published an article in 1912 “The Midwife Problem”, which analyzed a survey given to obstetricians of their thoughts on midwives were. The article states “a large proportion admit that the average practitioner, through his lack of preparation for the practice of obstetrics, may do his patients as much harm as the much-maligned midwife.” This statement demonstrates the discrimination of skilled midwives. Comparing a trained midwife to a unprepared obstetrician. “doctors are the main reason women don’t have midwives.” says Cristen Pascucci the Author of “ Why Are We Asking Doctors if Women Should Have Midwives?”.
