Keeping Birth Normal with Midwife Led Birth

In this first of the “Best Of” Series which is a mix of my personal favorites and the top downloaded episodes of all time since  Mum’s The Word  launched back in Dec 2015, I’m lucky enough to interview Jacky Bloemraad de Boer, my midwife for both of my children’s births! She is a woman of wisdom and has immersed herself in all things Birth for decades. I am so thrilled that I was able to have her share with the Mum’s The Word listeners and be my inaugral guest. Its still a fave episode of mine.

We discuss in this episode;

The role of a Midwife
The benefits of a midwife led birth
Midwife mindset
De-medicalizing Birth
Research around home birth and natural birth

Jacky Bloemraad de Boer’s Bio:

Jacky Bloemraad de Boer is a mother, a wife, CPM (Certified Professional Midwife), a Doula, a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, a Nutritionist, Herbalist & a Doula Trainer. She lives in both Amsterdam and Cape Town.

Midwife

Jacky is passionate about fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and women’s health and is continually exploring the various aspects of global maternal health and in particular midwifery care and the continuum of care.  Midwifery care can improve maternal outcomes because experience and research has clearly shown that pregnancy and childbirth care which has been de-medicalized and restores dignity and humanity to the process of childbirth by returning the control to the birthing woman has proven to be the safest approach.

Jacky is dedicated to educating midwives, the world needs more midwives and as Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Jacky has also published a book: A-Z for a Healthy Pregnancy and Natural Childbirth,
