UPDATE on September 13th, 2021
For years I have been planning to recertify as a Child Birth Educator. As I completed the Amani training, I was very excited to welcome expectant couples back into my home.
As I thought about preparing these innocents for hospital birth I had a clarifying moment and suddenly realized that after promoting husband and wife homebirth for the past 25 years, that I would not be able to teach this method or any method of birth to young parents.
I wholeheartedly endorse Amani Birth and the Bradley Method as two excellent childbirth preparation classes for first time parents.
I plan to remain an independent voice agitating for drug and surgery free birth in the sanctity of the home.
I checked in with Dr. Amy recently and her blog is mostly dead. In this pandemic year of our Lord 2021, her message of all things chemical feels rather flat as the young moms prepare for parenthood during end times events.
I hope and pray each couple will find the information they need to make solid choices for their families!
I was happy to appear on Aisha Al Hajjar’s chat today to discuss how being a Childbirth Educator and Doula has changed my life for the better.
