  • Re: The home water birth of my third child

    Thanks so much for sharing your birth story and photos. I love, love, love the La Basseine Pool---best birth invention in years. I know just the third time Mom who will love reading this so will tell her to get over here and read it right away.

  • Re: Membrane Sweep

  • Re: Dear Pres. Obama---want to save millions in obstetrics?

    I'm a bit wary of "midwifery model of care" these days because it can mean midwives getting absorbed by the medical system and practising exactly the same way as the drs. I would like to see registered midwives in my province (BC, Canada) doing my four suggestions above. Unfortunately,...

  • Re: A long year without MT

    Hi Women, I'll get hold of Jen in Oregon who used to keep us fully informed about all things to do with the intact penises of baby boys. I don't see a baby care or intact penis forum here so this will probably be where the latest on that is discussed. I've been very busy on that front for...

  • Birth and Bio-Physical Profile

    My friend, who is a homebirth and birth center midwife, just had a round of Bio-Physical Profile problems. That is, some of her clients decided to step on the medical intervention train and have one, "just to see if their baby was all right." What that invariably does is start them on the,...

  • Not Enough Milk?

    What is causing this epidemic of “not enough milk” in mothers who are trying to breastfeed? I am glad that it didn’t happen before the invention of artificial baby milk formula, because if it had, a lot of us probably would not exist today. In fact, the human population would undoubtedly be much smaller...
