I am Mother Nature’s helper. I do not intervene unless it’s absolutely necessary. There are many women in the gyne [gynecology] aspect that are walking around with big, big fibroids, with ovarian cysts. As long as she tolerates what’s going on, I leave her alone. I leave her alone. Now if things come up, if Mother Nature says, “You know what? I need some help with her.” Then I go to surgery. I love surgery, but I also don’t like to do surgery that’s unnecessary.
I don’t even like to monitor fetal heart rates unless it’s absolutely necessary. I don’t like IVs [intravenous therapy] unless necessary. So I want it to be a very joyous, natural process. I do encourage epidurals with the first delivery because she doesn’t know what she can handle. Second, third deliveries, I say, “You know what, let’s go without. Let’s see what we can do, but it’s always in the background.”
