Moraga, CA. (PRWEB) February 20, 2006 — Amayal Center for Health & Wellness Education announces a vitally important international conference to educate health professionals and the public about the Humanization of Birth. Monterrey, México is the conference site because Monterrey suffers from one of the highest rates of Caesarian birth in the world – up to 80% according to one Newsweek article. This 3-day Humanization of Birth Conference will be held March 20 – 22, 2006.
This conference is very reasonably priced to make it affordable for all people who are seeking a change….seeking more. The scientific evidence and practical knowledge learned will promote the humanization of the birth process in our health practices and in our lives. We welcome health professionals, perinatal educators, journalists, social scientists, students, parents, and the general public.
Continuing education credits are available for health professionals and students. Most presentations will be in English. Spanish presentations will be simultaneously translated into English. Complete information is available at www.amayal.com/congreso2006.
The Humanization of Birth conference will emphasize the profound link that exists between our birth practices and the quality of life that our babies will achieve. Can we reduce violence in our societies by offering less violent births to our children? Contrary to medical evidence, some health professionals promote aggressive surgical interventions as the best, the safest, and the most comfortable birth options. However, science now indicates that there are long-term benefits to baby, mother and society when mothers and babies are able to achieve a loving, natural, drug-free childbirth.
Our speakers are experts in their respective fields. This distinguished group of perinatal pioneers and educators include: Michel Odent, MD, (London, England); Wendy Anne McCarty, Ph D, RN, (California, USA); Ricardo Herbert Jones, MD (Porto Alegre, Brazil); Barbara Harper, R.N. (Oregon, USA); Naoli Vinaver, CPM (Xalapa, Mexico).
Join us to learn about: new, evolving birth practices; what babies are teaching us about birth; prenatal & perinatal psychology’s 30 years of clinical findings, specific steps we can take to humanize our birthing practices and to better support babies in the 21st century; review US hospitals that now provide gentle birth choices; waterbirth being practiced around the world; the Primal Health Research Data Bank – an important new tool providing the criteria necessary to evaluate the practices of obstetrics and midwifery.
