June Meeting

Answering the Call: Becoming a Midwife

Thursday, June 25th 2015 at 7pm

Ask any midwife, they will tell you that midwifery is a calling, a labor of love to serve women and families. As more families discover the value of choosing midwifery care for their low risk birth, the demand for midwives is increasing. If you have considered exploring midwifery as a profession, join us on June 25, 2015.

We will have both student and practicing Certified Nurse Midwives (Carla Morrow & student) and Certified Professional Midwife (Christy Martin) and her student (Jamie Hinton) answering questions in a panel format about their training, how they balance work & family life, and how they have grown successful businesses in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area.

Meeting will be held at the University of North Texas Health Science Center:
1000 Montgomery St.
Fort Worth, Texas
Medical Education & Training Building.

Parking and main entrance are on Bunting Street.

TCBN meetings are free and open to the public. Please remember that regular meetings are only for adults and babies who are content to stay quietly in your lap or in a carrier for the duration of the meeting.

Thanks so much for your cooperation!

April Meeting

Secondary Infertility: the reality of a silent struggle

While primary infertility has slowly gained recognition, the pain and devastation of secondary infertility has not been widely received and acknowledged. The National Center for Health Statistics suggests an estimated 3 million women of childbearing age in the U.S. with one biological child deal with the hindrance of getting pregnant or carrying to term, oftentimes leaving women and couples to feel desolate with lack of support and awareness.

Join Andi Seibold, Au.D. as we discuss the causes, treatments, and emotional manifestations of secondary infertility as she shares her personal story with us.

Meeting will be held Thursday, April 23rd 2015 at 7pm at the University of North Texas Health Science Center,
1000 Montgomery St.,
Ft Worth, Texas
Medical Education & Training Building auditorium

Parking and main entrance are on Bunting Street.

March Meeting

Hospital Waterbirth: It’s not just for mermaids!

Thursday, March 26th 2015 at 7pm

Long known as the “Midwives’ Epidural,” waterbirth has been in the news lately. Opinions and questions have come from the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics), ACOG (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists), and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in recent years, at times directly contradicting the findings of international agencies with a long history of endorsing waterbirth.

Locally, some hospitals and care providers encourage waterbirth, while other do not allow it at all. The consumer is left wondering when is a waterbirth “allowed” at their hospital, and under what conditions?

Is it safe? How do you get the tub clean enough? How does the doctor or midwife deliver the baby under water?

Join Certified Nurse Midwife Lindsay Kragle Griffith as we discuss the pros, cons, do’s and do not’s of having a hospital waterbirth.

Meeting will be held at the
University of North Texas Health Science Center,
1000 Montgomery St.,
Ft Worth, Texas
Medical Education & Training Building auditorium

Parking and main entrance are on Bunting Street.

Please remember that regular meetings are only for babies who are content to stay quietly in your lap or in a carrier for the duration of the meeting.
