Perinatal Media, Part Three: Welcome to the world, now go to hell!” – A Baby Becomes Thingified Through Modern Birth

Treated Like a “Piece of Meat”

clip_image0071This practice of ungentle mouth clearing—performed by hurried or insensitive, and uninformed, medical personnel, unaware of the consciousness and keen feeling awareness of the enchufesneonate—can leave one with lifelong feelings of being treated like a “thing.”

It is common for folks to have feelings of “not being seen.” People can have lifelong body memories of having one’s mouth stretched wide.

428004336_a0275cf170_thumb1images (2)These feelings, while they may be reinforced by later life events, oftentimes have roots that go back to a time immediately after birth. At this time, too frequently, the jaw is pulled down for the insertion of fingers and suction devices. It is done in a manner that is excruciatingly painful for a being that has spent his or her entire life—nine months—previous to that in a relatively placid environment with its mouth closed. 

Jacobs-Ladder-Artcrpdimage_thumb22This ungentle procedure is also felt as an assault in that it occurs, usually, as the first event a baby is confronted with upon release from the womb.safe_image.php Its tiny mouth—never before fully opened—is often the first focus of attention, as large fingers (relatively) reach in, stretching the previously unopened and unstretched (virgin) mouth…breaking the metaphorical oral hymen of the neonate in a way that is felt to the infant to be comparable in pattern and violation to oral sexual assault.

Did you ever wonder why so many folks have such terror of seeing a dentist? Did you ever wonder what is the fascination with water-boarding and torture in recent years?

Victims Du Jour

Fox_Mulder's_abductionMonica-Bellucci-Photoshoot-Matrix-Movie-9By the way, I might mention that while genuine sexual assault and child sexual abuse is a reality that has long been with us and is only now really coming to light (thankfully), the similarity of this early perinatal experience of ungentle mouth clearing to sexual assault may have something to do with the epidemic of reports of infant sexual abuse that are coming out of counselor’s therapy rooms. 

MSDTORE EC0252886707crppdConfused interpretations of these reports can happen because most counselors and psychotherapists are ignorant of birth and perinatal trauma and yet more and more of them are allowing bits and pieces of regressive techniques into their standard professional arsenals.

In addition, they throw in these techniques, most often, without qualification or experience with these techniques, and oftentimes out of knowledge gained solely from books or second-handedly…not to mention rarely, robocop07because of professional arrogance, having experienced or undergone these regressions themselves. 

Combine this inexperienced dredging up of perinatal material with the fact, as I will be continually reiterating throughout this book, that people these days are closer to their perinatal unconscious, medusa3to their birth trauma. One can see how it can easily happen that when feelings of being orally assaulted after birth begin arising within the counseling rooms,medium_wruef9ycqa0crppd they can be interpreted, by therapist or client or both, as early sexual assault—that being the interpretation du jour, so to speak, and because of coursethe-matrix-revolutions-give-me-a-chance-film-photo-u1crppd both are ignorant of the fact of birth trauma—its having systematically been resisted and purged from mainstream professional and lay common knowledge, beginning with Freud’s rejection of Otto Rank’s discovery of it, right down to the present.  (But let’s not get into that just here.)

Welcome to the world…now f u

That is to say, the birth struggle ends, there is release…( finally!)…then, “Welcome, baby” — yank! stretch, robocop20feel manipulated and used, bush_borgtreated like an object and with no sense that one is a living aware being.

With this in mind—that this “Hello–fuck you!” experience can be the primal (first) experience of this world, of other -SGC- Unnatural eyes packCRPDpeople, of society — it may be easier to understand the profound fear and anxiety toward other people that resides inside many of us—for example, as in the book title: I’d Rather Die Than Give a Speech!

They can be seen to be teacherteethMacting out edsullivancartoontheir “fuck you” welcome into the world by attacking back and outwardly, rather than this early rage energy being channeled into some of the other, more healing or at least not harmful, responses possible to early assault.

    This is an after thought from above. I began thinking about how this relates to abortion and right-wing antiabortionists. It is well known that these RW sorts don’t care at all for folks in society AFTER birth.

    So it occurred to me, right-wingers and Republicans ers are so hateful and insensitive they can only have compassion for something they can’t see. They only have feelings for unseeable things, the unborn, their God.

    Apparently as soon as something becomes visible, their bottled up hatred comes pouring out. Even the unborn they claim to care for so much gets spit on uneventually, for at the point when a fetus becomes visible, like a baby coming out of the womb, they no longer have any feelings for it. They treat the baby, like they do all things in the physical world…all of Nature…with profound insenensitivity.

    I think it is related to the severe separation they have in their worldviews between Nature and their God. For they hate the physical world at least as much as they want to be loved by this Unseen Thing, their “god.” And once a being becomes obviously a part of that physical world, it no longer is part of that great Unseen which they desparately hope will love them…and it becomes unimportant.

    More than that it becomes a part of that sector of their Reality into which they can dump all the hatred they are feverishly trying to deny in themselves as they seek to “love” this hateful punishing “god” they hope will love them (a reflection of the hurtful parents they knew) the way they needed their parents to.

    For their parents were just like them–loving imaginary things but insensitive to the needful physical things in front of them–and were incapable of seeing or loving even their children once they came into the world.

    So the children of these people, who live in phantom worlds, are only compassionate and loving of others in their imaginations. In reality they treat the world and those actually in it like shit to make up for the fact that they were themselves unseen and hurt as babies and children.
