About Me:

Wow, midwifery

What a great thing to do and congratulations on leading the way in your area. Thanks for posting the "Carla Hartley's Trust Birth Initiative" that was very interesting to read.

I do support midwifes and home births though all mine were in the hospital. I hope it becomes more popular as more woman explore it both as a career and as an option.

A warm welcome to this vital online community. I hope that you will find many members to share ideas, passions, and dreams with. A great way to become involved is to post to your journal and/or comment on other members.
You might take a bit of time to browse the member directory. or you might start a group yourself discussing issues of childbirth.

Louana is also a midwife and she might be a great person to connect with.

Again, welcome to you!

Welcome to World Pulse

Dear Rhione,
Welcome to our community! You will sure be able to share your experiences and read other women's birthing experiences as well.
Your website is very interesting, I am actually pregnant, and I am thinking more and more about the delivery process and trying to figure out which methods will suit me the best...I agree with what you say, and particularly about reminding that birth and pain are part of a natural process...
Thanks and hope to hear from your experiences,
