March 30-April 3, 2011, Ina May Gaskin will be attending Midwifery Today Conference, participating in several lectures and classes. She will also be promoting her book Birth Matters: How What We Don’t Know About Nature, Bodies, and Surgery Can Hurt Us. Ina May Gaskin has gained international notoriety for promoting natural birth. She is a much-beloved leader of a movement that seeks to stop the hyper-medicalization of birth—which has lead to nearly a third of hospital births in America to be cesarean sections—and renew confidence in a woman’s natural ability to birth. Location: Hilton Eugene and Conference Center, 66 E. 6th Avenue Eugene, OR 97401. For more information or to register for the event go to http://www.midwiferytoday.com/conferences/Eugene2011/.
