Tine Greve and Gail Hart discuss Clinical Issues in Birth Care

In the morning, you will learn about different reasons for prolonged labor, how to detect the pathological labor from the simple prolonged labor, and how to overcome difficulties and correct problems when possible or facilitate transfer when needed.  The afternoon session covers normal and complicated second stage issues.  The teachers will review second stage research from a midwifery point of view, focusing on how maternal positions and associated birth environments affect childbirth outcomes. This full-day class is part of our conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, April  2016.

This 4-disc DVD set from La Primavera Maternidad Clinica gives you over 7 hours of birth footage. The births shown in this DVD set are so gentle and work so well with nature, they show how birth should be conducted in a very gentle, hands-off kind of way. The set is in Spanish only, but our shared humanity makes them completely relatable.

"Midwives who deliver at home or in birth centers are less tempted by technology, but perhaps only because it is not available in those settings, even forbidden by law in some states. Often when I look at labor and birth in this century, I am saddened by all that is lost. I fear that soon, the only normal birth "allowed" will be for those wild, renegade women who seek out the wild, renegade midwives who still believe in birth and remember how to do nothing. We must not forget how to do nothing." The Challenge of Doing Nothing - by Katherine Jensen Midwifery Today Issue 72, Winter 2004. - dz http://www.midwiferytoday.com/articles/doingnothing.asp
