You are a MOTHER, your baby is YOURS. 

I write this post with much sorrow in my heart, with pain for how many mothers do not know their rights for being a MOTHER. I dedicate this post to my Romanian readers, so you know that as a mother you are FREE to be close to your baby and NO ONE is allowed to tell you otherwise! Please take two minutes of your time to read this beautifully written passage (I did not write this), I do not who did but I wish that I knew! We live in 2017, our babies are ours and I am urging all mothers in Romania to stand for what is rightfully theirs… their CHILD! 

Something a MAJORITY of Romanian doctors + midwives should read!!!! A baby should NEVER be taken away from the mother after birth even for reasons such as ‘the mum needs to rest, for changing or being fed’. The first few days are crucial to attachment + breastfeeding to go as smoothly as possible and I will never understand why in romania people are paying 5000-7000 lei for these private clinics just for the babies to be taken from them. Alongside that the culture teaches women that they are unable to manage by themselves and they NEED the help (almost a controlling and manipulating way of lowering self esteem of mothers to be so they genuinely believe they can’t manage without babies being taken away.’) I repeat your child does NOT need to be taken away from you (as long as it’s perfectly healthy) and neither should you as a mother be accepting that! If the baby is taken away it should be on YOUR say, not theirs! Whoever wrote this, wrote it beautifully and this truly is how it should be! 

Bebelușii: 

” Bună mami,

Sunt puiul tău

Eram în pântecul tău, la căldură, nu știam ce este foamea, frigul, lumina si senzațiile de a purta haine si scutece. Auzeam vocea ta, fluxul continuu al sangelui tau si cateva zgomote zilnice. 

Eram mereu lipit de tine.

Apoi m-am trezit intr-o situatie cu totul noua: plamanii mi s-au umplut cu aer, am auzit vocea meapentru prima data.

Lumina.

Frigul.

Caldura.

Frica.

Apoi am auzit vocea ta.

Am simtit pielea ta, bratele tale.

Si sanul tau.

Este ceva cald de bagat in burtica mea, dar tu continua sa ma tii in brate, lipit, nu ma lasa pentru ca mi-e frica.

Suzetez la fiecare 10 minute pentru ca am nevoie de tine.

Uneori mi-e foame, uneori sete, dar deseori este doar modul meu de a afla ca esti inca alaturi de mine.

Spune-le familiei si prietenilor ca sunt la fel de frumos si in poze, acum vreau sa stau doar cu tine! 

Tine-ma aproape! 

Lasa-l pe tati sa gateasca sau decongeleaza ceea ce ai pregatit inainte ca eu sa ma nasc.

Nu este momentul sa faci pe Master Chef, mami! 

Este momentul sa descoperim impreuna cum putem trai separat, dar mereu aproape.

Nu-i asculta pe ceilalti! 

Nu sunt alintat si nu vreau lapte praf.

Laptele tau este mai mult ca suficient. Sunt mic si imi ia mult sa ma hranesc, uneori adorm. Incearca asa: cand dorm eu, dormi si tu mami.

Stiu ca te simti obosita.

Dar nu va dura la nesfarsit! 

Sa iesim afara mami! 

Pune-ma in sistem , aproape de sanii tai si mergem unde vrei tu! 

Eu nu am nevoie de altceva, decat de tine.

Ajuta-ma sa ma fac mare, nu ma lasa sa plang, plansul meu e mai mult decat un alint, este frica de moarte.Pot supravietui doar cu tine! 

Tine-ma langa tine, mami, sunt mic! 

In curand voi descoperi lumea si voi avea mai multa incredere.

Ajuta-ma sa cresc! Intr-o secunda devenim mari.

Relaxeaza-te mami, inchide lumina. Intinde-te langa mine si ia-ma in brate. Mangaie-ma si pupa-ma repetand amandurora ca totul va fi bine! 

Nu tine cont de sfaturile pe care nu le-ai cerut! 

Sa stam impreuna, mami, lipiti asa cum eram pana ieri, cand eram in burtica ta! “
