K., The Journey into Wellbeing
Educating the world on natural health and wellness is
my life’s calling. I embarked upon this mission in my mid-40s, and never
thought, at my age, I would become an advocate for natural birth.
It was during the filming of the pilot for my show, “The Journey into Wellbeing”,
that I learned the story of Mary Breckinridge who founded Frontier Nursing
University 75 years ago in Eastern Kentucky.
We profiled this American hero and the significant differences she made
in the lives of Kentucky families, as well her continuing impact on health care
learning about Frontier, I always assumed that working with a midwife was only
an option if I was pregnant. Over the past few years, I have learned that mom,
dad, and the kids can all benefit by partnering with a midwife
at different phases of their family’s growth.
A lot of people are just like me in
that they are confused by midwifery, so I created a series of brief educational
videos. We shot these videos in South Florida, which is home to an amazing
birth center, Breath of Life. The first
video shows my chat with Chris Hilderbrandt, CNM, ARNP. Chris is the Director
of Breath of Life and a passionate advocate for midwifery. This video includes myth-busting, details on
what happens at a birth center, and we even cover insurance options.
I hope you will enjoy this video and share
it with your network. It should be a
useful tool to help families understand the many benefits of partnering with a midwife. This video is the first
of several that will be shared monthly. I look forward to your feedback and
suggestions for content. You may feel free to reach me via e-mail at [email protected].
