Thank you so much for stopping by! Time appears to be flying by way too fast and I'm looking to do something exciting with the rest of my life. I'll be starting an online fitness business called "GoBeDo" sometime this year. Be sure and check in. You'll learn about High Interval Training, Yoga, Body weight exercise, Spartan races, Functional training and whole lot more. Real $hit, for Old Timers like me. Why? We only have one shot at a grandiose and fulfilling life. Let's get busy creating one. Remember, it's the start that stops most people. The last thing I want to take to my grave is "regret!"
Peace/Love and Hugs!

The Business of Being Born

Hey, it's Marco! In the early part of the twentieth century, a campaign against midwifery began, which was led by the allopathic medical establishment. At that time, 95% of deliveries were in the home with midwives present. The campaign to present midwives as the dirty, unclean, and the poor option by the allopathic medical establishment ensued in a massive marketing blitz. Meanwhile, hospitals were presented as the clean and safe option, with supposedly better trained professionals. What makes these assertions somewhat sad, and laughable at the same time, is the fact that doctors in those days received no hands-on training in birthing at all. The attacks against midwives continued for 30 years, despite the statistical proof that midwife-assisted births were categorically safer than those conducted in hospitals.
Why Americans Ought To Reevaluate What They Were (Falsely) Taught about Child Birth: "The sad state of birthing in the United States, which is usually done without midwives."
