Womens Heartbeat


Women, particularly in male dominated societies, are at risk of sexually transmitted diseases. Not least of which is HIV / AIDS. Being HIV positive is not a death sentence. It is a call to treatment and improving your lifestyle.
If pregnant women are treated on antiretrovirals there babies are protected in pregnancy and have reduced transmission risk during birth. Babies of HIV positive women can be put on ARVs from birth.

My call is to the women of the world - know your HIV status.

If you are HIV positive, please be tested for Tuberculosis too.

I am interested in talking to women about childbirth and motherhood, and womens health issues

Hello Barbara, When my

Hello Barbara,

When my daughter was born, we had the most amazing mid-wife. She was a gift beyond words, I honor you first for you chosen profession.

I honor you second for coming forward to begin a dialog on childbirth, motherhood, and women's health issues. If this personal post, does not garner good dialog, please post again in the ResourceExchange section and perhaps consider starting a group around midwifery and health. What you are offering is very much needed and appreciated.

In Friendship, Dave...
