Events and Updates

A few months back I was interviewed on the internet about my philosophy of birthing. You can view the Skype interview at : A word of caution about the transcript. There are a lot of obvious transcription errors and such but the content is worthy of your time. Also, want to announce another successful external version this week at the Sanctuary. This first time mom had exhausted all other remedies and using hypnosis by Luree the unmedicated procedure took less than a minute. It feels great to use the skills I learned years ago for the benefit of our clients and the honoring of informed choice. Of the nine deliveries I have attended over the last 3 months there have been 2 breeches and 3 VBACs (Including 1 VBAC after 2 c/sections). All nine families had joyful and amazing out of hospital birthing experiences. Makes one have to stop and think that in my Ventura County community at least 5 of these 9 would have ended up being delivered by the only option available in the hoapitals - a cesarean section. Necessary? Elective? Is that how you would describe the diagnosis placed on their operative reports by the obstetric surgeons who performed them? Tomorrow, Thurday, August 2nd at 11:30 AM I am being interviewed on internet radio by Mary Oscategui's International Maternity Institute. The topic is "Fearless Pregnancy". Please tune in or catch the podcast later. This Sunday, August 5th, is Boobie Palooza in Los Angeles sponsored by The Berlin Wellness Group amongst many others. I am on a panel that includes Ricki Lake at 12:30. See: Please check these events and interviews out. Thanks, Dr. F
