I have had 4 amazing Home Births. This is one of my favorite topics so someday I will add lots to this page. My favorite book about Natural Childbirth is Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin. Taking Charge of your Fertility by Toni Weschler is an excellent book on natural birth control. In the recent years I have learned to prepare and capsulate placentas after a woman gives birth. This has been an interesting new study for me. Placentas are an age old remedy for women after they have given birth. It is common in Chinese medicine texts and an excellent way to balance women’s hormones after birth.
