Season 2 | EP12: “Waterbirth & Gentle Birth Choices ft. Barbara Harper [Part 1]
In today’s very special episode, in her cozy and warm hotel room, we sit down for a lovely and inspiring chat with Barbara Harper, a leading voice for childbirth and maternity care reform, an author, educator, midwife and internationally recognized expert on the use of warm water immersion for labor and birth.
Barbara is a true guardian of Gentle Birth practices; her award winning book and DVD, Gentle Birth Choices, has influenced hundreds of thousands of parents and professionals worldwide. Her mission is for women to have gentle respectful births and ’to ensure that waterbirth is an available option for all women in all birth settings’.
Barbara takes us back to how it all started for her, why she does what she does today, her beliefs and experiences with birthing women and newborn babies and most importantly why she believes women deserve to have gentle births.
