A wonderful blog post on the IMPORTAMCE of actually being IN and spending time in a childbirth class. I’m sad they are getting shorter and shorter. Starting 2018, my Kaiser classes will only be 5 hours total.

A Great article on PROM, (When your water breaks before labor begins). So much of the standard practices done in the hospital are based on very old research, when we didn't have as much information an resources as we do today. Take the time to research your options to have the best chance at the kind of birth you want!

Breech vaginal birth is safe! Just need to find a provider who is trained to deliver breech vaginally! It can be done!

I was recently talking to someone hoping for a VBAC. She was really taken aback with emotion about how things turned from plans for a beautiful normal birth, to a Cesarean birth she didn't want and certainly didn't expect. She seemed surprised by the level of difficulty and emotion she was having about it. And while not everyone has a negative experience with an unplanned Cesarean birth, (I wouldn't say I did), it does happen. And the thing that it says to me, is we are not raising our daughters that birth is important. That we care what happens and how it happens. We do.

They said, wear sunscreen and save your life, you're a bad mom if you don't lather your kids with it every time they're in the sun!! And now what do I hear? By trying to protect ourselves from harm we are actually causing ourselves harm in another fashion? Sounds familiar....
