Ilyen a szülés valójában - brutális képek, amiket többé nem töröl az Instagram
Katie Vigos régóta küzd azért, hogy az Instagram megértse, a szülés egy természetes folyamat, amit úgy kéne elfogadni ahogyan van, és nem letiltani a valóságosan ábrázoló fotókat - írja a Mother.
Vigos 2014-ben indította az Empowered Birth Projektet, mert meg szerette volna mutatni a világnak, milyen is a szülés a maga nyers természetességében. Korábban a közösségi oldal nem ítélte ezeket alkalmasnak a bemutatásra, ám a nő aláírásgyűjtést kezdeményezett, sőt Vigos az Instagram két vezetőjével, Nicole Jackson Colavóval és Marne Levine-nel is találkozott. Akciójának eredménye az lett, hogy mostantól nem törlik a szülést és szoptatást bemutató képeket.
Az ilyen fotók már simán maradhatnak, de a csoport közösségi oldalán az alábbiaknál jóval durvább képek is vannak:
Calling all nurses! RN, LVN, NP, CNM, CRNA… We need you. This country needs you. Our patients need you. I am co-creating a piece of technology-- and more importantly, a MOVEMENT-- that seeks to revolutionize the way our healthcare system works. Until now, getting nurses on the ground-- be it in a home or hospital setting or at ground zero of a natural disaster-- has been tedious at best and limited to human staffing capabilities. Until now, technology has not existed to streamline the process of sending mass notifications to nurses on a national level to call them to action. @holliblu has created that technology, and we need YOU to help us take this all the way. __ Think of any recent disaster that has required nurses to mobilize… Hurricane Harvey? The Las Vegas massacre? Imagine future crises that will undoubtedly occur. Do you know what the current system is that puts nurses on the ground to serve people in need? The answer is phone calls, texts and emails. I know this because I’ve been working in this system for a decade and staffing is a nightmare! Not only that, but nurses who show up in a crisis zone are doing so at their own expense. They must take time off their regular jobs and nearly always finance their own way. Very few nurses can afford to do this. From our pool of membership fees, we plan to offer financial assistance to nurses who wish to mobilize in times of need. __ We are a grassroots movement, a tech startup company. We have something incredibly valuable to offer with the potential to affect global change… and we need nurses to download our app so we can reach our goal of 5,000 members this month. We want you to become a part of a passionate community with kindred minds and hearts willing to serve the people and support our nurses. We are available to both iOS and Android users.

“Surrogacy is something that I didn't know a lot about until recently, and it has burst my heart wide open. Here are some words from a Woman who has given these two beautiful men the ultimate gift. ? "Altruistic surrogacy is complex, but it’s very different from what you see in the news. If it’s a headline, then it’s unlikely to reflect reality. Surrogates and intended parents form real, strong, beautiful relationships with the mutual intention of creating a baby for the intended parents. Surrogates do it precisely because we want to help create and grow someone’s family. So the idea that we are ‘giving away’ a baby is just not true – the baby is conceived and carried with the intention of them belonging to someone else. When Darcey was born, I wanted nothing more than to see Mike & Nate with their daughter. The reward for being a surrogate is seeing them become a family. There is no sense of loss or grief for giving away or losing her. I love her deeply, but I never wanted to be her mother. How am I doing, emotionally? I cried yesterday whenever someone wished me a Happy Birthday. And whenever someone says “You’re amazing!” But most especially when I see a photo like this, of Mike and Nate’s emotion at seeing their daughter. I am not grieving; I am hormonal and overjoyed and satisfied and completely loved-up. This is the ‘Surrogate High’ and it is amazing." Welcome to the world, Miss Darcey. Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away! ✨@breedownes_doula_photgrapher __ #surrogacy #surrogate #loveislove #empoweredbirthproject
