'Vaccinate now' to beat bird flu

Hilary Butler - Friday, October 17, 2008

Flooding back into my brain, as I read this headline, were headlines you might not remember, from 1976; "World is on Brink of Killer Flu Epidemic"..."Swine Flu immunization: 'Go' at last" ... "World-wide alert for Killer flu virus"... "President takes swine flu injection to allay scare".  All of which added up to one case which was ordinary swine flu, no killer virus at all.  But that's not what the world was told.  There's money to be made out of fear. Continue Reading

Mothers overcome fear with natural prozac

Hilary Butler - Monday, October 13, 2008

"Ah yes. Strange title. In fact, Hilary, you have altered it somewhat...." That I have.  This stunner of an article in the Herald from Reuters had me shaking my head. We shouldn't be talking about mice: lets talk about mothers! Continue Reading


Film Review - "Orgasmic Birth"

Hilary Butler - Thursday, October 09, 2008

“Orgasmic Birth” is an awesome film, in the true sense of the word, talking to the deepest needs of women, at the gut, emotional, and intellectual level. In one sense, words fail me. The film follows home birthing parents growing and being reborn as different people, fulfilling their full potential of parenthood, and in particular womanhood. Interwoven are scenes of emotionally bereft, stark hospital births. This film confirmed what I’ve seen and known for so many years. The two systems can “birth” completely different families.  Continue Reading

Sucking eggs - natural birth babies bond better

Hilary Butler - Saturday, September 06, 2008

" Bonding stronger if birth is natural". So read the heading on page A17 of the New Zealand Herald today. The article isn't available on the website because it originally came from the IndependentContinue Reading


"Winning words"

Hilary Butler - Sunday, August 31, 2008

Today's Sunday Star Times, has a letter penned by Paul Rutherford, Karori, Wellington. It's tragic that Rutherford (hopefully) "believes" the words he actually penned; sobbingly sad that the Sunday Star Times printed them at all, and indicative of the appalling state of knowledge in the media today, when editors and journalists at the Sunday Star Times, can't see how off the mark the letter was in the first place, and award it the "winning words". Continue Reading


Australian parents on the run

Hilary Butler - Sunday, August 24, 2008

Vaccination law in New South Wales, Australia is very clear.  If a mother is hepatitis B surface antigen positive, the parents can be offered immunoglobulin and the vaccine for the baby, and if the parents say, "No", the paper work is completed and that's it. But that's not what happened in Australia this week. Dr David Isaacs, who was not even involved in the case to begin with, decided it was time to make an "example" of two parents. What he didn't realise was that he picked the wrong target, and that they would go into hiding. Furthermore, he also forgot the story of Liam Holloway, and what happens when other parents are outraged when doctors abuse parents, as well as the law. Continue Reading
