On the Lack of Humility in Birth

Nathan and Maryn reflect on the black and white way the birth world (and even the regular world) can sometimes look. In this episode, they tackle the challenging topic of women who are attending births as midwives or birth keepers without enough hands on experience to have the wisdom to solve potential issues. How about some humility for the process of birth and the experience needed to attend with integrity?

About the Midwife and the OB

Can a doctor and a midwife get along? Or at least respectfully disagree on important issues surrounding pregnancy and birth? The One About the Midwife and the OB is a collaborative project between Maryn Green, CPM and Nathan Riley, MD that hopes to bridge the gap personally and professionally between medicine and midwifery. Listen in on these honest conversations between friends as they tackle topics in pregnancy and birth that are often divisive.
