BirthLink was founded in 1996 based on the principles of undisturbed birth, immediate uninterrupted bonding and and breastfeeding. These are practices that are rare in our culture. Since we started educating parents about these birth options we have helped many make healthier choices. Is it the easy way? No! Parents must still do their homework. They have to be willing to educate themselves about their birth options. While most parents still don’t know they even have birth options many have been choosing to give birth in an Alternative Birth Center, Free Standing Birth Center or at Home.
We help parents learn about their options and then guide and direct them to practitioners that might be a good fit for them. One of the ways we generate operating revenue for BirthLink is through private consultations for parents. This is a crash course on birth options. In about one hour I can lay out a menu of choices. For the parents I see in my office I give them a folder of articles I have collected for years. They also get my personal referrals for midwives and other practitioners.
We cover a fourteen point check list that has evolved over the years. They also receive this so they can continue their research. Parents who want to make informed decisions and save time doing so can contact Jo Anne Lindberg at best firstname.lastname@example.org. The joy of sharing my knowledge and expertise makes the process fun and informative. I also offer phone and Skype consultations for those that live too far to come to my office. I have even worked with parents in other countries. This is a labor of love for me. For more information please visit our web site:
