The Happiest Baby on the Block - The New Way to Calm Crying and Help Your Baby Sleep Longer (DVD)

We love this method of infant calming. Instead of the (not) helpful suggestions to leave your newborns to cry themselves to sleep, this DVD describes how you can recreate the safety and comfort of the womb (the only home your baby has ever known) and turn on your baby's natural soothing ability.

Easy to follow steps, with an explanation of the underlying principles, and video of the author and parents performing the technique. After one viewing, anyone can use these techniques to create a calm and happy baby. 

inamaychildbirthIna May's Guide to Childbirth

The author of Spiritual Midwifery, a book that launched ten thousand (or more) women into midwifery, Ina May is a tireless advocate for women and babies and natural birth. The first half of the book is an antidote to the horrible birth stories we read and see on TV, and hear about from friends and strangers (what is it about our pregnant bellies that inspire other women to attempt to terrify us?). The second half is a guide to making choices in childbirth. Ina May explains everything you ever wanted to know about having a baby but were afraid to ask.

The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth

Henci Goer, the author of the extensively researched Obstetrical Myths versus Research Realities, puts the information you need at your fingertips in easy to understand language. She explains the risks and dangers of "common" medical practices, such as epidurals and cesarean section. Tips and strategies to avoid unnecessary procedures are included, as well as resources for further information. 



What Babies Want

by Noah Wyle

A Documentary narrated by Noah Wyle (natural parent and actor on "E.R."). We all cried when we watched it the first time. Basically, it shows why loving and nurturing your child is the right thing to do. It is a powerful and moving statement about why we do what we do at the birth center. Using modern psychological science and real life experiences, this video shows us that our children are people, right from the beginning and that they deserve our love and respect. We haven't looked at babies the same way since viewing this film.

Information About Routine Vaccinations

It seems many of our parents are concerned, curious, or suspicious about routine childhood vaccinations.

We don't claim to have the answer to this challenging question, but we do have some resources for you:

Samantha's take on vaccines:

Vaccine Skepticism - Adverse Effects and Alternatives

Includes an up-to-date listing of web sites, books, and other sources of reliable information. Written by Samantha McCormick, CNM.

Dr. Bob Sears has finally published his take on vaccinations, complete with details on the pros and cons and dangers and an alternative vaccine schedule.

There is a companion web site, with a referral page to find a vaccine friendly doctor (meaning a pediatrician who will work with alternatives to routine vaccinations).

Pregnancy and Birth

Pushed Birth Blog

In Pushed: The Painful Truth About Childbirth and Modern Maternity Care (Da Capo, 2007), Jennifer Block reports on the current state of maternity care across the country.

Pushed is not a pregnancy guide, but rather a narrative investigation of modern American childbirth. The Blog is a companion to the book.

Do routine inductions, C-sections, and epidurals equal medical progress? Why are physicians and hospitals denying women vaginal births after cesarean? Can breech babies be born vaginally? How did episiotomies become routine? Is normal birth the next "woman's right to choose"?

Pushed tackles all these questions and more.
