Supporting Waterbirth International

My very dear friend and President of Waterbirth International, Barbara Harper, is in a dilemma. Our understanding is that Barbara hired a convention manager for the Gentle Birth World Congress to help her because she was traveling so extensively. Whatever has transpired is because she was unavailable to do as she has with past conventions. A lesson for all of us operating for the good of mankind. We need to help her out.

As for, we are currently selling several waterbirth videos and 100% of the proceeds will be going to help Waterbirth International. For decades Barbara Harper has inspired, advised, shared, networked and supported birth and birth professionals. The move toward more civilized birth and water labors/water births is mostly due to Babara and WBI. It is time we give back to her and Waterbirth International.

And so I challenge all of you birthing professionals to stand with me as we stand beside Barbara. Purchase videos for you or purchase videos to donate to libraries or local hospitals or physician's offices. It is time to make a difference. It is time to stop talking and begin doing. The change can begin today...with you!
