I have written about this in a few articles but I thought it needed its own article due to how pervasive it is and how much damage it causes. If you know a pregnant woman, please consider sending this to hour as food for thought.
“Like a pendulum, the course of most sciences and philosophies swing between usually two competing ideas. However, also like a pendulum, with each swing to one side or the other, it does not go as far as it did the last time. The two ideas swing, back and forth, getting ever closer and closer to the perfect truth in the still center.
With delivering a baby and the days/weeks that follow, the two competing ideas loosely described are one that is mother-centered and one that is baby-centered. The pendulum right now is on the side of being baby-centered, particularly when it comes to breastfeeding. In my opinion, it needs to swing again, perhaps one last time, towards the perfect truth in the still center.”
