  • Re: Kombucha and Agave in Pregnancy

    I've never heard that about agave - what was her reasoning? I think that Dom is probably one of the best resources for kefir and kombucha information. His information is extremely thorough. Here is a link to his kombucha page, but I can't find anything related to pregnancy. http://users.sa.chariot.net.au/~dna/kombucha.htm He also has a ...

  • Re: Fetoscopes

     I think it just depends. I have always heard very well with a fetoscope but can't hear a dang thing with a Leff or a pinard. When I was in school we all had things we could hear better with and things that we couldn't hear well with. Do you know anyone who has one that you could maybe try it out? Maybe your preceptor goes a peer ...

  • Re: For doula's

    I think the most I ever did was 5 in a month and it was do-able, but that was pre-kids and I worked at home in a very flexible job. I attended 6 births in a month as a midwife once though and that just about killed me.
  • Re: Thoughts on Pelvimetry

    [quote user="midwifea"] Littleredhen, I am just playing devil's advocate here, and I really appreciate your statement and I take it to heart but, what if your midwife was mapping your pelvis so that she could better understand what position(s) would help you in birth and or to really understand you babys' position at the ...

  • Re: Searching for New Ideas

     Thank you very much! I have been looking at that video wondering if it might be useful :)
  • Re: Thoughts on Pelvimetry

    I still think it's a total waste of time. I think good knowledge of the pelvic anatomy in general is good of course, but think pelvimetry on each woman isn't helpful whatsoever considering how much the shape can change due to relaxin and maternal position. I think pelvimetry can be very limiting (ooh she has a narrow pubic arch so x, y, ...

  • Re: Searching for New Ideas

     oh and no the hospital doesn't offer waterbirth - but, that's a great idea to show a video that talks a lot about the benefits of water :)
  • Re: Searching for New Ideas

     All of the chairs are bolted in - I know, bummer :( They haven't told me that videos need to be a certain way, but I waffle back and forth on whether to show videos that I would love versus what would serve them best (meaning typical hospital birth vids). Yes, Terri's Idea Box is the one that I have. I've used a few of her ...

    It varies from 2 couples to 15 couples. I teach five 2-hour sessions. My next series doesn't start for a couple more weeks.
  • Re: Painful gas after C. section, baby getting gassy along with mom

     I was thinking probiotics as well. Sounds like some issues with their gut. MDC has an excellent forum discussing leaky gut syndrome. Quality probiotics for both of them, cod liver oil, along with continuing to play around with dietary changes (sometimes it can take up to a month before you notice any difference).
