This might be one of the most important shows I’ve ever done. There really is nothing more important than harboring safe passage for our new babies into the world. And there’s nothing more important than making sure that moms are happy, healthy, and supported along the way.
Today, you’ll hopefully be a little shocked to find out how our conventional medical system has been failing families. You’re going to learn some statistics that will blow your mind! But, more importantly, hopefully you’ll be propelled to take action to help make changes for the positive. Whether it’s through your own birthing process, the birthing process of a significant other or family member, or sharing the information out to your community, we all can make a huge difference starting right now.
Dr. Christiane Northrup is an obstetrician and gynecologist with decades of experience. She’s also the bestselling author of several books and one of the world’s leading advocates for women’s health and wellness. She’s on the show today to share some of the most crucial information I’ve ever come across. Make no mistake, this episode is definitely not just for women. Everyone needs to learn from Dr. Northrup’s experience. I truly believe it can save lives, and make millions of lives exponentially better. It’s time to take better care of ourselves and our communities. Just click play, take good notes, and use what you learn to make a positive difference.
