Have you thought about birthing naturally at home or in a birth center? Have you considered a water birth? If so, a midwife is the birthing practioner you'll likely be using. Midwives have been around for thousands of years (they were even mentioned in the Book of Genesis). While midwives attend a small minority of births in the U.S., in the countries with the best pregnancy outcomes, midwives are the primary care providers for pregnant and birthing moms. In fact a 2013 study in the U.S. found the same thing (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/20/midwifery-benefits_n_3787058.html).
On tonight's show, midwife Jamin Sylvada of San Diego Midwife answers common questions, including:
What do midwives do? What care do they provide?
When would I hire a midwife?
What are the benefits of birthing at home? Birth center?
What are the benefits of water birth?
How does a midwife ensure she'll be available for my birth?
What about medical interventions (drugs, etc.)?
How safe is it to birth at home wiht a midwife?
Tune in to get your questions answered.

Last week, Utah press reported that grandmother midwife Vickie Sorensen had been jailed and charged with manslaughter for a stillbirth or neonatal death that occurred in December 2012. The press reported that Vickie's home had been raided by armed police with cadaver dogs the year before, on an allegation that she was burying dead babies in her backyard. The press failed to mention that there were no dead babies in the backyard, and it failed to comment on the affect such a raid had on the Sorensen family, and the Utah midwifery community in general.
TODAY Gena will interview Human Rights in Childbirth founder Hermine Hayes-Klein and midwifery activist Katie McCall about the legal treatment of home birth midwives like Sorensen. How does the treatment of home birth midwives affect women's right to choose for home birth? What are the human rights implications of the difference between what doctors face after a bad maternity care outcome, and what midwives face?

A conscious life transitions into a conscious death. End-of-life Midwife, Margy Henderson, will share her experiences of supporting those who are dying. Margy will also tell us about bringing back the tradition of home funerals and explain the benefits of green burials and singing at bedsides.
Later in the show, Veronica will channel Eloheim to allow Margy to ask questions and get Eloheim’s insight on death and dying.
Margy Henderson is comfortable with death, her own and those she witnesses. She extends her death-midwifery past the careful tending of her friends' last weeks and offers families the age-old skills of continuing that care after death. Home wakes ease the grieving process. Green burial comforts those of us who trust the body's natural gift back to earth.
