"With these systems we have students leaving our school system going on to college and doing well in college " he said. "Years ago when we had a student like this the strategy was in effect to get him into a trade or business and avoid print. The new approach is to hit it head-on and say students need to be able to fully use print."
People need to understand American homebirth midwives are a second class of midwives with less education and training than other American and European midwives. The standards for direct entry midwives, in terms of educational requirements and clinical training, are far below those of any other midwives in the industrialized world. American homebirth midwives are, by and large, quacks, and babies are dying as a result.
Addendum: One of the things I find most interesting is how everyone involved understands that the refusal to seek real medical care led to this tragedy. Carri's family has removed the posts detailing her actions in the weeks leading up to the catastrophe, and MotheringdotCommune has removed the posts by Carri and those responding to her. The baby died possibly because of unassisted birth/homebirth, and now supporters and the family want to remove the evidence.

Happy Fathers' Day to my dad -- far beyond happiness or sadness since Sept. 7, 1991. I miss him still, and wish he could see what a fine crop of grandchildren he has.
Happy Fathers' Day to my daughter's father --far beyond happiness or sadness since January 7, 2009. I had an acute attack of missing him last night. He would be so proud of the way his children have been conducting themselves in the last five months.
Happy Fathers' Day to my older stepson, Drummer Man. He is a fine father and an upstanding young man.
And that’s why we honor fathers on this day. The fathers who have entered into relationship with their child have done so by choice, and so are choosing the child’s needs over their own. Children clearly crave relationship with their father and get different things out of it than they do out of their relationships with mom. In that sense, fathering is a gift given by the father to the child. On Father’s Day we honor that gift.
The new doors and windows are in. The drywall is 90% done (I think there's a final texturizing coat to come). The exterior stucco is 75% done (additional coat needed). The crown molding, baseboards, and window casings have been selected & to be installed next week. I've selected the kitchen countertop (Eurostone Lido) and backsplash (Mosaic House HPC 48). The tile for JumperGirl's bath (Erin Adams offset mosaic in taupe, lavender & silver) and my bath (Oceanside Glasstile Random Modular in Puget Sound) rooms & the kitchen.
Next up: new hardwood floors in addition & my bedroom, plus refinishing the old to match.
