Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you?
Excellent start. We are Emma & Emma, registered midwives (UK). We used to work in a continuity model of care as caseloading and home birth midwives, but sadly that way of working disappeared.
What do you want to do?
That’s just the UK though…
Yeah, we know. There’s a ridiculous amount of oppression, suffering and inequality around the world, and a disproportionate amount of it is experienced by women. Small acorns turn into big oak trees, and big dreams still need beginnings.
Do you hate hospitals?
Hospitals are trying to change though. There are lots of continuity projects… do you value that?
Not everyone is low risk are they…
Will you judge me if I don’t have a home birth and breastfeed?
Why don’t you have loads of pregnancy photos on your site? It doesn’t make me feel very warm and fuzzy.
Why did you choose the photos you do use then?
What kind of values do you have, like, in general?
What do you think of c-section births?
We think a few things. We think the proportion of them is quite high, and there's a good chance that some are unnecessary, given their risks. We think we'd like to see the proportion of c-section births reduce. We also think that mums who birth by c-section are absolutely incredible. We think a c-section birth shouldn't diminish the recognition of how much effort, sacrifice and energy mums invest in pregnancy. We think a c-section is tough going and demands bravery and resiliance, especially if it was unplanned. We think c-sections can sometimes be tough to recover from, physically and mentally, and that parents who have been through them need love and support to help them feel proud of all they have achieved. We think that birth is birth is birth, and a c-section doesn't disqualify anyone from encouragement.
