Got to meet Ricki Lake!!

And view a sneak preview of "More Business of Being Born". This one has a segment on Ina May Gaskin and The Farm. It will also have a segment on doulas which I really excited for the world to see.

Also, here is a news interview that my OB (Dr. Elrod) did with Ricki while she was here:

Midwife Delivered Births Increase in Alaska

And a pic from the luncheon we got with her:

How cool! I'm more than a bit jealous! I didn't know that More Business was in the works, but I CANNOT wait!

I will have to see if I can find it!! That's funny! He definitely is NOT your typical OB. In fact, his wife is getting ready to deliver and they are doing a homebirth Biggrin I think it might have said that in the interview, but he is just awesome!

Twitter is being lame right now--getting a "loading seems to be taking a while" message, or I would find it for you. This is the Best OB Ever post, for those who haven't seen it: http://www.theunnecesarean.com/blog/2011/8/27/konichiwa-patients-best-ob-ever.html
