Talk at Yoga Works, El Segundo

Patricia Grube, an extraordinary doula and yoga instructor invited me to come and speak to her prenatal yoga class today. I talked about my journey to the present enlightenment and explained the differences between the midwifery and obstetric models of care, birth choices and the definitions of true informed consent and refusal. We discussed home and birthing centers as well as hospital births. Stressed was the normality of birth and how trust in the process often leads to a successful outcome. This was followed by some good Q and A and I handed out 10 copies of my book, "Fearless Pregnancy...". I was honored to speak to this group and give them a resource for all options. Sipping a cup of tea and listening to these women sing to their unborn babies made for a joyous event. Thank you, Patricia.
With affection, Dr. F
