  • Re: Teaching Classes Specific to Homebirth

    As an aside, if anyone needs any spelling/grammar assistance, I'd be more than happy to check stuff over and send you my edits. It's kind of my hobby. I know that it's very hard for people to see the errors present in their own work (they've been staring at it for way too long).
  • Re: Does the Vagina Shed????

    My best educated guess would be yes and no. The vagina is a self-cleaning organ that by definition is constantly "exfoliating" itself - i.e. sloughing off dead cells. These are part of what makes up vaginal discharge. However, as it is mucosal tissue, which should by definition not "shed" in the same manner as the rest of the ...

  • Re: NMI (yet another school question)

    I got my information packet about 2 weeks ago, but I still have to email Shannon Anton with some questions. From what I gathered, the hands-on classes (Hearts and Hands) can be offered via distance, and you have to complete those modules before continuing on to everything else, but I need to ask if I ought to wait unitl the next set of Hearts and ...
  • Re: Skincare Regime/s

    I forgot to mention that I don't wear makeup. I'm sure that that would be a reason to have a skincare regime, at least so you don't end up with clogged pores.

  • Re: Skincare Regime/s

    I don't think that any "skincare regime" is going to make a bit of difference in the long run. Just wash the dirt off your face (use a mild soap), use sunscreen, and eat healthily. If you get acne, try experimenting with your diet - i.e. cutting out dairy. If your skin gets dry, moisturize it, and if it tends to get oilier, blot ...

  • Re: NMI (yet another school question)

    I can't honestly remember why I didn't also consider NCM. Maybe I just ran out of browser windows on my computer. I'm going to have to look at it too. From what I can tell, it seems a little more complicated than NMI in terms of timing everything. The way that NMI works, you do your academic stuff mainly on your own (regular distance ...
  • Re: swinging babe yoga

      I agree - and the person who supposedly trained her, Igor Charkovsky, has already lost some babies to his "water therapy". Unfortunately, the parents all believe so truly in him that they won't even file a complaint. Perhaps this is a morbid way to look at it, but it could just be natural selection at work. If there's ...
  • Re: swinging babe yoga

      Her name is Lina Fokina. I looked up her website and apparently she is into a lot of the stuff Igor Charkovsky does. She said that swinging the baby around is supposed to help teach them not to be afraid and improve motor skills. She apparently teaches workshops about swimming and letting go of fear. I personally don't see how this ...
  • NMI (yet another school question)

    Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone had attended/known anyone who had attended NMI (National Midwifery Institute) or any of the Hearts and Hands classes?  Like so many others here, I've been weighing my options in terms of different distance programs, and have narrowed it down to NMI and MCU (Midwives College of Utah). The main ...
