My guest today on “Healthy Births, Happy Babies” is Barbara Harper, an internationally recognized expert on waterbirth and gentle birth, founder of Waterbirth International and bestselling author of “Gentle Birth Choices” which has been translated into 9 languages around the world.
In this episode, we will cover:
- why Barbara believes every baby DESERVES a gentle birth and how it inspired her to write the book “Gentle Birth Choices”
- What a birth in water offers the mother and the baby and how safe it really is (she covers the physiology of the first breath of life beautifully here)
- How to surrender to a “Baby Led Birth” and how doing so will allow for a safer and easier birth
