  • Birth is a Human Rights Issue

    I have thought a lot about “Birth is a Human Rights Issue,” possibly because of hearing so many brutal birth stories.

  • Working in the Same Community over Time

    In our birth practice, we always had so much trouble saying goodbye to the mothers we served. You know how accustomed you get to seeing them weekly, by the end of the pregnancy?
