Recent and upcoming events involving Dr. Stu are worthy of mention. On the September 26th edition of the new Ricki Lake Show Ricki and director Abby Epstein hosted a Business of Being Born reunion show. Issues concerning home birth, VBAC and choice were discussed withmany of the players from the groundbreaking documentary. Dr. Moritz, midwife Cara, doula extraordinaire Ana Paula Markel, Ina May Gaskin and myself were among those who made an appearance. Taping a live show was quite an experience. Green room and makeup and even craft services! Hope you caught it and if not you may find it at The Ricki Lake Show archives. Next up I will be on 2 panel discussions at the "Heads Up" Breech Conference in Washington November 9-12. The list of experts is impressive including Dr. Martin Gimovsky and Dr. Frank Leuwen. A few years ago this conference was instrumental in changing the stance of the Canadian OB/Gyn Society's position on breech birth. They put out a statement supporting the choice of selected breech birth and took the noble position that Canadian resident physician training programs should once again be teaching breech vaginal delivery techniques. This year we are hoping to bring a bit of common sense to American medical training programs and very soon before the skill is lost. I am honored that one of my clients who had a successful home breech delivery will be on a panel speaking about her experience. Thank you, Kimberley. Would love to see any of you there. Oh, and by the way, Jodie Myers beautiful film of Aurora's Breech Home Birth has nearly 500,000 hits on youtube! Amazing!
