For millions of parents worldwide, natural (holistic )parenting begins with the choice of how naturally to go about birthing their children. The issue of natural birth is a hotbed issue as it comes to a head with many of the policies, practices and generally accepted views of the medical establishment.
From September 27-30, 2007 the Gentle Birth World Congress will commence in Portland Oregon. The event brings together leading experts from around the globe including obstetricians, midwives, hospital administrators and birth advocates amongst others, to discuss the philosophical, social, political, economic and psychological issues at play in natural birthing.
