Welcome to the
Trusting Birth Summit
with Faith Gibson
I am the mother of three, gave birth to my first baby in the backseat family care in effort to avoid Twilight Sleep drugs, gen. anesthesia, routine use of episiotomy and forceps. I now have 2 adult grandsons. Professionally, I was an ER and L&D nurse for 15 years, until I cross-trained into midwifery about 25 years ago.
Since then i have provided community-based midwifery care that includes prenatal and postpartum-postnatal care for my planned home birth families.
I also am an activist in the area of legislation that supports women’s reproductive health. As an licensed midwife, I was appointed to the California Medical Board’s Midwifery Advisory Council, which I chaired for three years, served for a total of 6 years.
I also have five birth and midwifery-related websites.
The major site primarily deals with the “Politics of Normal Childbirth and Helping to End the Hundred Years War between Midwifery & Medicine”.
