Better pregnancy nutrition can grow a healthier baby, keep perineal tissues intact and support VBAC
In my experience, there are significant
things a pregnant woman can do to improve
the integrity of the tissues and thus help
to reduce complications.
Better Baby Book: Use nutrition,
your environment, and your mind to create
the healthiest, smartest, autism-free baby
possible by Lana Asprey, MD, and Dave
Asprey, "To help parents gift their
children with better health and higher
intelligence for life." It's available
either on Kindle or paperback.
This book was written by a couple who
know more about pregnancy nutrition than
anyone I've ever heard, met or read about.
The Midwife Archives is a collection of information about all aspects of pregnancy, birth and well-woman care from a midwifery perspective. Compiled and maintained by Ronnie Falcão, a homebirth midwife in Mountain View, California.
The Midwife Archives originated as Ronnie Falcão's notes from discussions on the various email lists hosted at fensende.com. It has grown to include links to lots of other relevant sites. The Midwife Archives is now maintained on Ronnie Falcão's web site - gentlebirth.org.
NEW! Search all of gentlebirth.org, including the Midwife Archives.
There is currently no mirror site, since my current host service, verio.com, has good redundancy.

Much of the information in these pages is extracted from conversations on the birth-related distribution lists at fensende.com. As such, the information wasn't necessarily presented in a straightforward, linear fashion. Consequently, the organization of these pages is somewhat haphazard.
This page contains a sort of Table of Contents.
At the bottom of this page and every page in the Midwife Archives, you can access a search engine for these pages.
