“Gentle Birth World Congress & FREE Baby Expo”
Are pregnancy and birth the part of medical conditions? Or are hospitals the safest places for giving birth? Without “professional setting”, can women give birth in a natural circumstances? Are there other options for pregnant family except hospital-based services?
One particular reason for me to come to USA is WaterBirth International, funded by Barbara Harper. This non-profit organization aims to promote water birth to any place in the world. According to their website, the benefits of waterbirth and water labor includes:
*Speeds up labor
*Reduces blood pressure
*Gives mother more feelings of control
*Provides significant pain relief
*Enables the mother to assume any position which is comfortable for labor and birth
*Conserves her energy
*Reduces the need for drugs and interventions
*Gives mother a private protected space
*Reduces perineal trauma and eliminates episiotomies
*Reduces cesarean section rates

I understand more about your field and study in Oregan through the thorough introduction of where you are staying and whom you are working with in the States. If I will have any chance to give birth a baby, you will be the number one person I must seek for consulting :-D
Could you please also share the message you got last Sunday from the Church service? I think I need to get some words of wisdom as well. ^^
Hope every thing is going well as you wish at your end.
