Reasonable Adjustments Returned My Joy in Pregnancy

I am autistic. I did not think being autistic would make much difference on my experience of being pregnant. I was humbled to learn otherwise. I am fairly typical of a generation of women who are being diagnosed as autistic in adulthood. Of course, autism is a spectrum, so everyone’s experience will be slightly different.

Homebirth: Living a Life-transforming Experience beyond Fear

Fear during labor and birth at home must be addressed with a different scope than what the literature reviews tell us. Let’s go beyond what mind-body medicine has taught us.

Marion’s Message: A Birth Where I Learned a Lot

It was a normal birth in a large room in a small house in a city neighborhood. The modern hospital where I had midwifery privileges was just blocks away. I could transfer care easily and quickly if needed.

Delphi’s Birth Story

Delphi’s birth was wonderful!
 
Delphine and her husband Éric are originally from France. They used to live in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with their two children, Samuel and Thaïs. We met because of our connection with the dolphins and the sea—first through the Internet and then through letters we sent to each other via midwife friends.

A Family Reborn

I was turning heads.

Here I am in the center of the ultra-orthodox, Satmar Hasidic Jewish community in Williamsburg, New York, jumping out of a bright red jeep with a brown leather birth stool peeking out of my canvas sack. Next to me, Kristen is carrying a bulging briefcase on her back. We walk with purpose, the two of us.
