Home From Vacation

Well, I'm back from my vacation, sorry for the unexplained absence. But there is so much to tell, I will try to post regularly so that I can catch you all up particularly about the 5 babies that were born while I was gone (only 4 mamas by the way!), the AMA resolution buzz, Birth Fest 2008, and a book that will come out next year to follow up from the Business of Being Born. So you will have to come back and check it all out. For now I wanted to send you to a You Tube post of a small documentary that I was part of a few years ago. It is made by a film student, Laura Garland, from San Francisco State University. Her final project was 8 minutes and you can watch a few minutes of it here:
Thank you, Laura, for your lifelong support and advocacy for midwives!

Welcome to the blogosphere, Ricki Lake!! The Business of Being Born gals have just launched their new blog called Ricki's Room. I am honored to have been invited to be a regular contributor! Having produced our San Francisco screening of The Business of Being Born, I have gotten to know Ricki, Abby and Amy personally. These gals have rocked our world and we can't thank them enough. Yippee, can't wait to see their other projects like a book and a sequel that will be out next year! Go check out the blog already! Post to me and I will see you there!
