The more I keep reading posts like this one, the more I think that the quality of life and the common sense in Europe are way, way above US standards.
I gave birth to my son in the Netherlands, where a woman can choose if she wants to give birth at home or in hospital, actually giving birth at home
is being encouraged by the government. I gave birth in hospital, 40 minutes after entering the building (my partner assisted our son' s birth and cut
the umbilical cord) and we left three hours and two forms later (one with our son's health data for myself and one form for the nurse that will visit
the family or the single mother every day during the first seven days for three to four hours after the childbirth, this woman will do housework for
the mother and support in every capacity the family and will check on baby's and mother's well-being, all mothers are entitled to get this support
provided by the social services). No child ever will get vaccinated at such young age and no parents ever will be pressured into vaccinating their
children, more to say before vaccinations parents are informed about benefits and risks involved, the earliest possible time would be 6 weeks after
birth with the second check-up at the pediatrician.
I really keep asking myself why so many health professionals, social workers, law enforcement in the US display such dehumanizing behavior, are they
being paid so badly, are they overworked, do they hate their jobs, are they outsourced, are they not allowed to go on strike so they let it all out on
the customer, how sad
