Wednsday Wrap Up Graphic - Utah birth doulaFive great tips from Lamaze International that make a huge difference in your hospital birth.

Fascinating photo essay from Life Magazine, December 1951 W Eugene Smith’s photos of a southern nurse-midwife.

I’ll likely do a blog post on this one alone when I’m done reading all the good stuff here, but this week Childbirth Connection released a new report on the Hormonal Physiology of Childbearing. At this link, you’ll find a press release, information for parents, fact sheets for providers, infographics and posters.

You can also read Penny Simkin’s thoughts on the report and its implications for childbirth educators and doulas.

And an interview with the author, Sarah Buckley, on the report is interesting as well.
