    Get to know CAPPA Faculty - Julie Brill on Childbirth Education

    in Women

    Let's get to know Julie Brill, she is one of our wonderful CAPPA Faculty members.  She trains Childbirth Educators and shares her insight and wisdom on this subject (and more) with our listeners. 

    Julie Brill, CCCE, CLD owns and manages WellPregnancy in Bedford, Massachusetts. She has been teaching childbirth classes and attending births since 1992, and mentoring new birth professionals throughout New England as a member of the CAPPA Faculty since 2003. Julie is honored to have taught thousands of childbirth education students in a variety of settings and hundreds of CAPPA birth professionals. She feels she has the best job in the world, and is lucky to have found her profession and her calling.

    Julie graduated from Tufts University with a degree in Sociology and Women’s Studies and completed the Massachusetts Midwifery Alliance Apprenticeship Course. She is certified to present Peggy Huddleston’s Prepare for Cesarean Birth, Heal Faster workshops. She is also a La Leche League Leader and the mother of two homeschooled teenage daughters.

    Julie finds that the women who are drawn to doula and childbirth educator work are an amazing group and she feels blessed to be able to mentor, learn from, and work with them. Doulas’ desire to support women during the childbearing year and their choice to work unknown hours at unscheduled times is the inspiration for Round the Circle: A Doula Anthology, her first book, which is available for pre-order at ibreastfeeding.com.

    The Legal Show the A.B.C.s of Childbirth

    in Legal

    Attorney Sarah Steele and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day. 

    The audience should know that although Ms. Steele is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.

    This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
    Tonight we discuss the business of childbirth.  A woman is suing a New York hospital, claiming she was given a cesarean section against her will. Her first two children were delivered by C-section and resulted in difficult recoveries. So in 2011, she was determined to have her next baby naturally, through a procedure called "vaginal birth after cesarean," or VBAC. It carries risk but can be performed successfully. After several hours of labor, the mother’s doctor pushed back and forced her into having a third C-section. Dray is suing the hospital and doctors, claiming negligence, malpractice and lack of informed consent.  Joint Bennet and Sarah as they discuss the business of medicine and what we as patients can do to keep our rights in place while we keep our health intact.
