We are excited and honored to be hosting Ina May Gaskin for the first time in Croatia, in Zagreb on April 20th and 21st!

 

 

Ms. Gaskin is first and foremost an esteemed professional and international authority on midwifery and birth. She is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and holds a Masters of Arts degree as well as an Honorary Doctorate degree.
She established and has worked at The Farm Midwifery Centre in Tennessee, a centre which over thirty years of work has maintained a 1.5% rate of caesarean section and 99% rate of breastfeeding. When we consider that caesarean rates in the world and in Croatia are rising, and breastfeeding rates are very low, we have much to learn from this woman's experience.

Furthermore, Ms. Gaskin is a prolific author and has penned four books as well as numerous articles in professional and lay publications. Her book "Ina May's Guide to Childbirth" is a must-read on booklists of pregnant women all over the world and has been translated into numerous languages. This very active woman continues to travel the world to speak about midwifery, pregnancy and birth at numerous conferences and seminars. She has inspired and continues to inspire healthcare workers that work with pregnant and birthing women, doulas and parents the world over.

This is an event that will leave a mark on all those in attendance, doctors, midwives, doulas, parents and activists alike.


"Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine. The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body."
