Join us for this interview with Amy Tinney, a licensed midwife who will enlighten you with the benefits of various options. She will share what birth is like in different settings, the difference between a doula and a midwife, and what kind of pre- and postnatal care you might receive with a midwife.
Amy Tinney is a Registered Nurse, Licensed Midwife and Certified Professional Midwife licensed by the California Medical Board since 2009. She is mother to an awesome teenage boy. As a nurse, Amy attended thousands of births both in and out of the hospital. She also has worked with clients as a Doula/Monitrice--childbirth educator. Amy’s clinical and home health care experience with high risk obstetrics and birthing allowed her to progress rapidly through her midwifery apprenticeship in Los Angeles many years ago. Amy is recognized by The National Registry of Midwives (NARM) and the National Midwifery Institute (NMI). She has taught Advance Midwife skills in China, trained new students at the Sanctuary Family Wellness center, and currently teaches Nursing and Midwifery students in the U.S.
Amy’s experience as a care provider for women, combined with her love for the beauty and sacredness of birth makes her a uniquely intuitive and confident care provider. As the founder and owner of Art of Nursing Care, Inc., since 2006, she provides home health care for women of all ages, both before and beyond the childbearing years. Amy is currently training to become clinical homeopath, and she sees clients at her birth center in Marina Del Rey.

This week, our guest is Tiffany Miller. Tiffany has been a labor doula since 2007, a childbirth educator since 2011, and has started her training as a student midwife earlier this year with her company - Birth in Joy (email@example.com, 719-632-9712). Tiffany and her husband, Levi, have 4 children (none of which were born in a hospital). Tiffany has served over 40 women as a doula, and she has attended over 30 births as a midwife assistant, and she has recently started her midwifery training. Co-sleeping can be a controversial topic of conversation. Is it safe? What does the evidence say about it?
Listen LIVE as Dr Pauline and Catherine talk with Tiffany and get to the bottom of some important questions about co-sleeping. As always, we welcome your comments and questions through Facebook (Dunamas Center Ministries), Twitter (@YourDunamasLife), or call in during the show at 646-564-9618.

Authors of Hope I Don't Die Before I Get Old
Tracey and Mary Bowman were inspired to write their book,
while caring for their aging parents through chronic illness, fractured hips, surgery and death. As each other’s support network, they shared secrets and discoveries, tips and advice--amassing a wealth of wisdom on the topic.
Mary Boone Wellington, artist, inventor and businesswoman lives in The Great North Woods of NH. Discovering a world of frustration as she began to help her mother through her passage to old age, Mary Boone notes “The most surprising thing to me was how ineffective I was at making a real difference in my mother’s life. I had felt certain this “caregiving stint” was going to be a pleasant interlude of quality time spent with my beloved mom. Instead, it turned out to be incredibly stressful for us all.”
Tracey Bowman’s first exposure to caretaking was as an aide in a nursing home when she was 17. She later became a midwife completing her nursing degree at Rhode
Island College and her Master’s of Nurse-Midwifery at the Univ of Penn. She has spent 30 years taking care of mothers and babies. Currently she is a clinical teacher in the Nurse-Midwifery program at Yale Univ and maintains a private practice in southern New Hampshire. She says, “Even with all my knowledge as a nurse, I found
myself feeling overwhelmed and confused at times while helping my mother and father.

She has also provided instructional classes and workshops for a variety of educational institutions. Ms. O’Uhuru has appeared as a guest speaker at the Art of Birthing, the Northern Manhattan Perinatal Partnership, the National Association of Childbearing Centers, Bronx Talk, Oxygen with Gayle King, Ethiopian Midwifery Conference 2000 and for Ethiopian television. In addition, Ms. O’Uhuru has been featured in several articles and in two independent film documentaries entitled Home Delivery by Christine Tournadre (2006)and Bringin’ in da Spirit by Rhonda L. Haynes (2003). She was also featured on TV’s Discovery Channel in Amazing Birth Stories. Ms. O’Uhuru is a master’s graduate of SUNY Downstate Midwifery Program and a graduate of the City College Sophie Davis Biomedical Physician Assistant Program at Harlem Hospital. In 2002, she founded her private practice, Gentle Spirit Midwifery Women’s Health Service, which offers comprehensive women’s health-care services. Gentle Spirit is a private practice independently owned and operated, with two office locations in New York and in New Jersey. Ms. O’Uhuru has attended well over five hundred out-of-hospital births for women in the NY/NJ metropolitan area.

We are all born and we will all die, making both of these transitions as gracefully as possible. But what will we do with each breath in between?
At the age of 14, Amy Wright Glenn began to question the Mormon faith of her family. She embarked on a lifelong personal and scholarly quest for truth. While teaching comparative religion and philosophy, Amy was drawn to the work of supporting women through labor and holding compassionate space for the dying. In Birth, Breath & Death, Amy shares moving tales of each life transition while drawing on her work as a birth doula, hospital chaplain and her own experience of motherhood.
In addition to her doula and chaplaincy work, Amy is a scholar of comparative religion and philosophy with over 20 years of Yoga and Meditation teaching experience. She earned her Masters of Arts in Religion and Education at Columbia University. Amy taught for 11 years in The Religion and Philosophy Department at The Lawrenceville School in New Jersey and was the recipient of the Dunbar Abston Jr. Chair for Teaching Excellence.
