We are continually bombarded by the media with a narrative that tries to convince us that our healthcare system is working beautifully, when in fact, it is failing miserably. The system has crumbled due to ignorance, intellectual laziness, greed, and regulatory organizations that have not done their job.
But, guess what?
When you are know all the facts and are able to weigh the risks and the benefits, you are the best decision-maker for your child, because...
MAMA KNOWS BEST!
HAVE YOU EVER LEFT THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE FEELING...
like they brushed you off because you are not the "expert" and knew how to care for your child better than you did?
like you were not fully informed of all risks and benefits before they prescribed, tested, or treated your child?
like "the doctor always knows best," so why question their infallible knowledge?
like you could be responsible for your child's injury or death for not complying with their procedures?
like it was safer to concede to the doctor's wishes than risk getting into trouble even though it didn't feel right?
like you didn't know what to do in a medical situation or what your rights were as a parent?
bullied, coerced, or threatened because you asked too many questions or wanted a second opinion?
forced to schedule doctor visits regularly even though your child is perfectly well?
like you wanted to make another choice for your child but were too scared to speak up?
HEY, mama. I'VE BEEN THERE TOO!
Like you, I have sat in those cold doctor's offices, and hospital rooms feeling scared, ill-equipped, and pressured to make the best decision for my child's well-being.
After a routine pediatrician appointment turned into a Child Protective Services nightmare, I abruptly learned that even though the media continually bombards us with a narrative to convince us that our healthcare system is working beautifully, it fails miserably. The system has crumbled due to ignorance, intellectual laziness, greed, and regulatory organizations that have not done their job.
