  • Re: Adoptive Breastfeeding

The site went down and has now been put back up. There are no forums or interactions but the information is a treasure. Go to: http://birthlove...

  • Re: carpal tunnel

    I've been waiting for someone to ask. It's a picture I took of two carrots that are "spooning". I thought it was so beautiful. Bought them at an organic farmer's market and came home and photographed the way they were wrapped around each other like a mom/baby. I didn't have...

  • Re: carpal tunnel

    Hi April: Two things: 1. a good Shiatsu practitioner (physical release) 2. tell her to forgive her mother (emotional roots of pain in the hands)

  • You Can Help Change Birth

    We all can work in many ways to change birth. To get some ideas about what you can do, read “26 Ways to Change Birth,” a Midwifery Today article by Sara Wickham. One of my favorite ways to plant seeds of change is to talk to people in the grocery store, on an airplane or wherever I am. I...

  • 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,...

  • Feeding Your Family While on Call

    One of the great joys of my life is growing our food. I translate this into meals as I bring it in from the garden. It is ever so handy to have meals already prepared after working all day. When I was doing births I would just call my daughter and have her get, for instance, spaghetti sauce out of the...
