Helena Lindgren and Diane Sjogren
Helena Lindgren is a midwife who has assisted home deliveries since 1996. She is currently researching planned home births as PhD student.
Diane Sjogren says in Sweden there are no traditional midwifery practices that she knows of, that all midwives are RNM. “In the hospitals we can use oils, massage and acupuncture for example. We homebirth-midwives use herbs and tricks we learn from each other and from Midwifery Today conferences for example, some of us use homepathic and antroposophic medicine.”
