Often a deviated uterus will lead to an automatic cesarean. Jessica Gray writes about how this difference in her physiology led to her happy breech births.
Karen Ehrlich began her journey with birth in 1972 and retired from clinical care in 2015. She hopes that this memoir will en-courage other long-time midwives to write their stories, so the many-layered tapestry of the re-emergence of midwifery will be available for years and generations to come. She is married and is a stepmother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, aunt and great-aunt. Her master’s thesis, completed in 2003, is entitled “Life is a Sexually Transmitted Condition: The Sexuality of Labor and Birth.” It can be read online at midwifekaren.org.
