CfM at ICAN Conference in Cleveland

Nasima Pfaffl, CfM Vice President, spoke last weekend at the conference Birth: Engage the Wisdom presented by ICAN of Greater Cleveland and the Doula Network of Northeast Ohio. Other speakers at this event were sociologist Barbara Katz Rothman (author of The Tentative Pregnancy) and Jennifer Block (author of Pushed). The purpose of the conference was to:

* Learn the reality of the U.S. technological birthing system
* Discover how to make positive changes, now and for the future
* Be inspired to return birthing wisdom to women and babies

Nasima spoke about consumer activism. Nasima is also a lead researcher for the CIMS Transparency Project and will be speaking while wearing this "hat" at the Lamaze "Off and Running for Normal Birth" conference in Kentucky this fall.

After the presentations, attendees had the opportunity to view the new film, Orgasmic Birth!
