I've been invited to speak at a conference next month and was suggested by Nadine Goodman--an amazing Reproductive Justice worker based in Mexico. She founded CASA, which promotes natural birth, trains midwives, doulas, aids what would be called "Granny Midwives" here, works for access to birth control.... so much important work! Mexico also has a high Cesarean Section rate and women lack meaningful input into their labor and birth experience. She noted that a hugh barrier is the majority of women DON'T KNOW the care they're receiving is unscientific and damaging to them and their babies--just like here. What we need is a national conversation/awareness of this. One thing I'm doing is writing letters to the editor whenever some dumb article denigrating home birth or midwives appears (usually in an OB/GYN journal). They haven't published any yet but will have to eventually. Can you make me aware of articles in newspapers, magazines, etc? I'm always up to write a letter & maybe it will have an effect. Stay tuned for our billboard campaign! ... See MoreSee Less

The amazing Jennie Joseph will be teaching/presenting on Sunday November 16th here in Buffalo. It's a 6 hour workshop/presentation that teaches how to reach, serve and empower disadvantaged women & their communities in pregnancy--achieving healthy pregnancies, natural birth, healthy babies, breast-feeding and parenting. Jennie Joseph has a Free-Standing Birth Center in Florida, a midwifery school, teaches doulas and created the "JJ Way". Her methods increase birth weights, decrease Cesarean Section rates, decrease infant mortality. We are so very lucky she will be here in Buffalo which has a universally high Cesarean Section rate among area hospitals but marked disparity in infant mortality rates--one rate for the affluent, another, much worse one for communities of color. Anyone that cares about this outrage--nurses, midwives, pediatricians, Obs, administrators, students, activists--you will want to attend! ... See MoreSee Less
