Women having been giving birth for millennia, but C-sections have increased dramatically in the last few decades and now account for one-third of all births. How many of these C-sections are actually necessary? Is natural childbirth even possible anymore? In this class, Dr. Russell will educate you on all your natural childbirth options and resources, the benefits and risks, VBACs, and how to support your child if a C-section is performed. If you’re currently pregnant or looking to become pregnant in the next year or two, this class is a must to learn how to bring your healthy baby into this world, the way you want. Handouts will be provided.
Dr. Ashley L. Russell graduated from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Arizona. She is co-owner and naturopathic doctor at Serenity Natural Health Center in Frederick, Maryland, and an expert on natural treatments for women’s health, specializing in period issues and menopause. Dr. Russell is currently working on writing her first book, “Reclaim Your Cycle: The savvy woman’s guide to naturally balance your hormones to live a PMS-free and energy- filled life”. In her spare time, she enjoys baking vegan, gluten-free treats, hiking, curling up with a good book, and spending time with her dog, Honey.
