Please see extract from his websitewhich has been translated into Engish.
In 2003 I joined the midwife Consuelo Ruiz Velez-Frias together to attend home births pregnant, as she had been doing and advocating since the mid 20th century in the two years left of life taught me everything I knew. I had decided to devote my professional life to providing mothers and babies experience the healthy, happy, loving born as nature intends. So I attend the BIRTH AT HOME with calm, respect and security that the birth of your child requires. I also offer monitoring of pregnancy, ultrasound 4D and advice for fertility. And I accompany families during pregnancy, delivery and postpartum, always ensuring the diagnostic accuracy but also the emotional, some little maintained, such as privacy, freedom and grandeur. Also, through my Publicationsand COURSES , I work for a model of care that, based on scientific evidence, to ensure a healthy and safe for our children.
And this decision was based on a thought: if a human being is capable of as complex as seeing, thinking, talking or calculate things, if a human baby is able in just nine months to train all its organs a perfect way how You can explain that nature fails to how easy? How can it be that one in four women need a cesarean section to give birth? Could it be that we are doing something wrong ?. And indeed, childbirth, as it was conceived in past centuries, we are witnessing a too far from what nature intends way. Therefore, to improve the delivery, just closer to nature. In 2003 I joined Consuelo Ruiz and, teaming with her, for the last 3 years of his life, learned and picked up his legacy. The legacy of a midwife who always believed in the ability of women to give birth. Without interfering.
In 2010 the publisher Anaya suggested I write a book, Pregnancy and Childbirth ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW (Collection "Clumsy") . I was struck by the title. I always believed that those who choose a delivery of minimum intervention is because they are smart. But I wrote it. For Dummies. We are all awkward if you take away the power that we have innate. I am also co-author of THE EMPTY CRADLE (Sphere 2009) .
