The placenta is a unique physiological miracle. Every placenta has a highly regulated process and contains what is called the Tree Of Life, serving to give nutrition to the baby throughout the 40 week gestation.
Every tree in nature is the same way. I have never seen a tree looking exactly like any other tree.

It is important to emphasize that the gentle birthing movement is not an attempt to make women who have had Caesareans or epidurals or Pitocin induction to feel guilty or less than those who succeed at birthing without these interventions.
This is what this podcast is about.

Gentle Birth Podcast
This episode is a walk-through of what you can expect from these podcasts.
Firstly, I will be having weekly interviews with gentle birth or natural childbirth experts, about to pregnancy health, pregnancy nutrition, nursing tips with lactation specialist, local Doula recommendations and much, much more.
The midwives from Birth Care in Bart Township Lancaster County will also have a voice in these podcasts.
What would you like to hear on these podcasts? Would you like to be a guest? Please let us know what is on your mind.
I have been a nurse for three decades in women’s health, and I’m somewhat of a techie. I love to podcast and know our patients and our audience will appreciate topics that focus on women, women’s health, and our dedication to preserving out of hospital births.
Gentle birth is the beginning of a lifelong dedication to the health of our children and their children for the next seven generations, and beyond.
Gentle birth is a mindset of respect, slowing down, and being present to our surroundings and to the gentle birthing process.
At some point in the future, these podcasts will be on iTunes and I look forward to you subscribing to them.
Happy Mother’s Day and have a wonderful week!
I am one of the happy bloggers for this site, as well as an RN at the Birth Center. Serving the Amish Community and others who desire a natural birth is one of the greatest honors.
Birth can be and often is a miracle of life especially at a birthing center, removed from the hurry and haste of hospital emergencies. We are trained to handle emergencies, too, and do so very well, but are a place where high risk is weaned out and normal labor and delivery is our forte.
As one of our nurses recently said, “I was coming home from a home birth and it hit me! I feel like I just left a visit with friends, not a job!”
Birth Care is a way of life. Many of us worked in high risk settings before coming home to Birth Care. And we want our patients to feel our dedication to making Birth Care their second home, too.
Coming Soon: The Gentle Birth Podcast
March roared in like the proverbial lion, bringing lots of soft, feathery snow and many snowstorm babies. We midwives have spring fever, and are eager to see that first daffodil raise its tender blond head from the soil.
Birth Care is a non-profit birth and women’s health care center devoted to empowering women to take charge of their health care. We deliver babies at our state-licensed and CABC accredited birth center as well as at home and at the hospital. We are a member of the American Association of Birth Centers and were the first birth center to open in Pennsylvania in 1978.
