| Birth and Perinatal Emergency (BPE)
Most already know of the existential Climate and Ecological Emergency (CEE).
Another less-known existential emergency is the Birth and Perinatal Emergency (BPE).
Here are some of the issues:-
Sperm counts could reach zero by 2045. That means no more babies. This is due to the use of hormone-disrupting "forever" chemicals used in plastic and so many other widely-used products.
Instead of the world riding on a wave of destructive human invention, we need to return to the ways of Nature, to work respectfully with Nature, attune to Nature's cycles and gifts. A key way to do this is Demedicalise!
Microplastics have been found in foetuses. They are able to cross the placenta.
Meanwhile, bottle-fed babies daily swallow millions of microplastics.
Science is not yet able to say exactly what the health impact is but we can be sure that this is an emergency, one of the most urgent environmental issues of the 21st century.
Natural Vaginal Birth is becoming Extinct
The widespread use of drugs and cesareans and tech (like artificial wombs) and interventions and patriarchal science and spiritual denial is completely destroying how Nature has intended for birth to be.
At an Animal level it is meant to be initiatory and orgasmic.
At a Spiritual level it is meant to be enlightening and ecstatic.
Michel Odent has warned us that we are in grave danger of no longer birthing with love hormones. This is completely unknown in our evolution and will have disastrous consequences. Our capacity to love is at risk.
"The aim of any futuristic birth strategy should be that as many women as possible give birth vaginally, thanks to an undisturbed flow of love hormones. The future of our civilizations is at stake." (Michel Odent)
What do you think will happen when Love is removed from Humanity?
Will we survive?
Solutions include: the need for women to reclaim birth and once again Demedicalise!
Breastfeeding is Dying; Breastmilk is being Poisoned
(1) Natural or normal breastfeeding is for 2-7 years. However, in the Rich World, way fewer than 1% of babies are breastfed for more than one year. Why do we neglect to give our younglings their magic potion? It is a tragedy that compromises the physical, mental and spiritual health of so many.
(2) Forever chemicals (PFAS) are used in many household products. They are difficult to avoid. They do not break down naturally and are known to accumulate in humans. They harm the immune system and disrupt hormones. They are linked to: cancer, birth defects, liver and thyroid disease, plummetting sperm counts, and many other serious health problems.
They have been discovered in huge amounts in the breastmilk of a wide variety of people. Babies are being exposed to these dire dangers when they are at a very vulnerable stage of development. The problem is getting worse. PFAS of all types need to be banned.
Ecosystem Reproductive Failure due to Climate & Ecological Emergency
It is not only humans that are facing the BPE.
The manmade Climate and Ecological Emergency (CEE) is completely disrupting the rhythms, seasons and systems of nature. Freak weather events are accelerating due to greedy and evil humans. These events are causing havoc to the reproductive abilities of complete ecosystems.
For example, in 2018 only a few animals and plants were able to reproduce in the Arctic.
It is only going to get worse. It is only going to accelerate further and faster, especially as politicians, media and some scientists refuse to treat our brutal imposition on nature as an existential emergency.
Nature provides our food. If nature fails, we fail. We can't eat money or black oil or coal. This is one way to extinction.
We are in denial. Tech is not the answer, as it's not yet invented, we're too slow to adapt - and tech usually creates even worse problems. We need to stop using fossil fuels, consume less (especially the wealthy of the Rich World), initiate degrowth, simplify our lifestyles, treat nature as sacred, and start building a Culture of Love, of Touch, of the Sun.
So the choice is: reharmonise with nature or face almost complete reproductive failure?
What is your choice?
