Instagram ei enää sensuroi synnytyskuvia ja -videoita – niistä otettiin heti kaikki irti

Ryhmä aktivisteja ryhtyi taisteluun Instagramia vastaan, koska se sensuroi järjestään naisten julkaisemat synnytyskuvat.
Sairaanhoitajana ja doulana työskentelevä yhdysvaltalainen Katie Virgos perusti vuonna 2014 Instagramiin Empowered Birth Project -tilin, jonne hän latasi naisten luvalla kuvia ja videoita synnytyksistä, joissa ovat näkyvillä naisten sukupuolielimet.
Instagram poisti kuvat ”alastomuuden ja järkyttävän sisällön” takia. Jopa jotkut kuvissa esiintyneet naiset joutuivat Instagramista tauolle. Viime vuoden lopulla Virgos organisoi vetoomuksen, jonka allekirjoitti 23 000 ihmistä. Vetoomuksen ansiosta Instagram luopui synnytystä koskevasta sensuurista.
Sensuurin poiston jälkeen synnytyksestä on tapahtumana otettu käytännössä kaikki irti videoiden ja hyvin yksityiskohtaisten lähikuvien myötä.
Alla sensuroimattomia videoita ja kuvia, jotka olisivat ilmiselvästi K18, elleivät ne liittyisi synnytykseen. Joissakin kuvissa on vasemmassa ja oikeassa reunassa valkoinen nuoli, jota painamalla näkee lisää kuvia samasta tilanteesta.

This particular #uncensoredbirth series is dear to my heart (and makes me cry every time I watch it!), because this badass mama @hannahandbabes gave birth just days after I launched #IGallowuncensoredbirth petition in December, and the energy of this movement was present with her in the birth room. How cool is that? 😍🙌🏼 in her words: __ “I am so glad to have had my baby girl while you are promoting this hashtag and making this change on IG. I am so stoked to share my photos and videos with you. I so hope that my photos and video can inspire other women to stop fearing birth and inspire their inner mama to roar! __ Baby girl Oakley was born 12.10.17. Birth was the most terrifying, beautiful, transformative experience of my life and I couldn't be more proud of my body's instinct to bring her earthside and to breastfeed. I was born for this shit!” ~ @hannahandbabes __ Swipe left for more photos! Video captured by Grandma, photos by @_laurenalberts, supportive father @mato526 __ Love, @katievigos Link in bio to sign petition! __ #birthvideo #hospitalbirth #birthisbeautiful #uncensoredbirth #IGallowuncensoredbirth #empoweredbirthproject

“During birth a woman goes into battle for her soul. I have heard so many women say, especially during unmedicated birth, “I’m dying!” Everything she has learned about herself falls away. She forgets the girl who was told her freckles were ugly. She forgets the teen that hated how her jeans fit. She forgets the young woman who was kissed when she didn’t want to be.* She forgets the woman who was spoken over, ignored, told shhh, told to be a good girl, to behave. A woman who is allowed to experience birth in a safe way, making her own choices, following her own urges, can connect with the universal, primal, wild part of herself. The animal part. The wildest part of her is the only part of her that can go to battle for her deepest spirit, love and intention. It does feel like you are dying. Because it is a chance to be reborn.” __ *there are some traumas that are deep enough to inhibit a woman from accessing this deep primal space. Sexual trauma is one. We have to be deeply aware of this when we are serving women, and create spaces where women can feel safe enough to confront parts of their stories that make them the most afraid. __ Magical words by @taprootdoula __ Magical photo vía @samanthavelezdoula @maianakokila __ #IGallowuncensoredbirth #empoweredbirthproject #physiologicalbirth #birthissupernatural

“This was the longest labor ever, i pushed every 10 mins it took her a total of 2 hours to fully come out but i finally did it after being in labor for 48 hrs.” ~ shared with permission by mama @indyaajayy, photos taken by @x__cee ✨ __ Question for you all: do you prefer uncensored birth images to be blurred or have a “heads up” notice? Or just go ahead and post in all its glory? __ Petition update: instagram is internally reviewing the petition, and I’ll be checking in with @nickyjcolaco periodically for updates and will share here. The petition will continue in the meantime ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 link in bio to sign #IGallowuncensoredbirth ✨ __ Love, @katievigos __ #empoweredbirthproject #physiologicalbirth #hospitalbirth __ Edit: the substance on mama’s perineum appears to be betadine, an antiseptic solution commonly used during medical procedures. This warrants a post all to itself!

Before I started #IGallowuncensoredbirth, Instagram censored and removed this amazing image of a breech birth, which had a sun flare covering the pubic area. Since I’m done with censorship, now you all get the original photo in all its glory. Our bodies are amazing! __ Mama @maman_eloise shares: "Breech IS a variation of normal and the world's view on breech birth needs to change. Delivering a breech baby IS a safe option if you have an experienced care provider. It is so important to be able to make an informed decision and to have support from your medical team but also from your family. Let's educate ourselves. Let's bring back breech. I had an amazing birth and my baby and I are both perfectly healthy. __ My midwife is skilled and experienced with breech births and ensured my baby came earth side safely and because of her, I avoided another unnecessary csection. My recovery was way faster and I was able to take care of my newborn and my toddler from day one. I feel so empowered and alive from this experience and I will make sure that my voice is being heard.” ~ @maman_eloise __ Link in bio to sign petition to allow uncensored birth images on instagram. We’re closing in on 17,000 signatures, so go sign it if you haven’t yet! __ #bringbackbreech #birthisbeautiful #empoweredbirthproject #IGallowuncensoredbirth
