Preach It!

No one can tell a woman what is best for her and her baby ... waterbirth, homebirth, hospital birth, doctor, midwife, Unassisted Childbirth (UC) or cesarean surgery ... it is for her and her baby to know. The best we can do is support her to access, trust, and know her own inner wisdom and communicate with the Being within her - the One whose birth it is through her womb and the man. - Janel Mirendah, Attachment/Birth trauma therapist, Filmmaker of The Other Side of the Glass.

Beam me up, Scotty

Beam me up, Scotty. 

I'm pretty sure, from the work I do with adults and with babies -- yeah, they tell me they don't want to be here  -- that most of us felt this when we arrived on this planet with our first experience and encounters being very brutal.

Image from film -- father's story about how he moved his hands in and caught his baby after doctor told him he was not allowed to massage his own wife's perineum. He wouldn't let go of baby when doctor wanted father to cut the cord. "I thought it was a trick to make me let go of the baby!"

Check out the doctor -- wouldn't he seem like a mean, cruel alien to a vulnerable new being who is designed for connection and love? Gowns, gloves, head caps, and plastic shield-mask on to protect himself from the mother's germs. Doesn't he look a little alien? Probing nose and mouth of new being? When it is known to do no good, but to cause emotional and physical harm, and to disrupt breastfeeding. Cuz, babies remember it!! Something coming into their face, causing fear and pain
that hurt their mouth and throat and interfered with breathing and swallowing. DUH!

Yesterday on my radio show, Thought Crime Radio: Voices for Human Rights of Babies (And by babies, I mean YOU!) we really went "out there" and compared alien abduction reports to obstetrical abuse. 
This site, UFO abductions, describes the typical alien abduction experience.  Where this description uses Abduction or Alien I interchanged a word for human birth. Hee, hee. But, actually, it is scary. Eery scary.

Straight Talk About UFO Abductions

A Typical Abduction Event

(Births) Abductions are complex series of events and procedures directed by the (medical caregiver) abductors to passive or controlled (women) abductees. In a typical or common (birth)abductions, humans are taken out of their normal environment by (their loved ones) aliens. The people are rendered passive and cannot resist. They are taken aboard a (hospital) UFO, their clothes are removed and they are made to lie on a table. A series of physical, mental, and productive procedures are then administered to the subjects. People's physical bodies are probed and examined. (The baby is removed from the woman). Sperm is taken, eggs are harvested.

The (medical caregivers) aliens perform staring p
rocedures during which they gaze into (baby’s) abductees' eyes at at distance of only an inch or two. These "mindscan" procedures appear to be neurological manipulations which give the (medical caregivers) aliens the ability to "enter into" peoples' minds.

After the table procedures, (women) abductees report that they are sometimes taken into other rooms where they are required to have skin on skin contact with unusual looking babies. (women are not really sure which baby is theirs). (Women) Abductees say that these babies seem to be crosses between humans and aliens. They call them "hybrids."

Abductees also see hybrid toddlers, older youth, adolescents, and adults.

Sometimes abductees report that they are required to perform tasks, that they are "tested" in some way. They say that machines are brought in to examine them. They sometimes are required to have a form of sexual intercourse with other humans, and sometimes with adolescent and adult hybrid
s. They are returned to their normal environment and within seconds, they forget what has just happened to them.

What do you think!? Wow, we had some callers!! Whew.

My question isn't really do aliens exist and are abduction stories true?  Personally, I feel that if humans on this planet are the highest beings in our Universe, we are F'd!! My question is, "How can society not wonder about the experience of the baby and do everything possible to protect the mama-baby connection so humans feel safe, nurtured, connected ... rather than fearful, in pain, and lost/abandoned?"
Think about it, feel about it ... how could the baby who depended on the mother for everything, who knew nothing but her, want anything else?

Buy It!

Part One: The Other Side of the Glass: a Birth Film for and About Men officially released in digital download format on June 2, 2013. Go to to purchase a digital download.

Men have been marginalized in birth for a long time. The old joke is that a man was sent off to boil water to keep him busy. I believe they were making the environment safe. Birth moved to hospitals and for forty years women were separated from their partners who was left to wait in smoke filled waiting room. Finally, he would see his baby from "the other side of the glass." Now a man can go in the birthing room and even get to hold his partner's hand during surgery. But they are still marginalized and powerless, according to the fathers I interviewed around the country.

Historically, birth has been defined by the medical establishment. The midwifery and natural birth movement now advocate for need "to educate and prepare men to protect their wife and baby" in medical environment. Seems logical ... if we process with the same illogic that got us here.

Through the voices of men - and doctors and midwives - men share heart-touching stories about how this is not workin' out. A man is also very likely to be disempowered and prevented from connecting with their newborn baby in the first minutes of life.

Now is the time for men to take back birth.

The film is about restoring our families, society, and world through birthing wanted, loved, protected, and nurtured males (and females, of course). It's about empowering males to support the females to birth humanity safely, lovingly, and consciously.

Donors, check your emails or email me at for info to download. Release on DVD is not planned at this date.

Resources - Healing Birth Trauma

"The Other Side of the Glass" has the potential to open up feelings that have been denied and ignored for a very long time. How to heal the trauma of birth at any age will be addressed in the film. Meanwhile, these are pioneers in the field.

--Note from the Universe,

"Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so children have very little time with their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world." - Mother Theresa
