Welcoming Speech: Ruth Evers

July 1, 2016

Courage is a quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, or pain. Courage ins't seeing what you want to see and proving to the world that you're right. Courage is looking at all sides of the matter and being brave enough that you realize you might need to change your ways because you allowed yourself new insights and a new paradigm.

Thanks to Gail Tully showing us videos of breech births that were not so easy. Thanks to Floortje Vlemmix for talking about subsequent births after the breech birth and for acknowledging that we're not so sure what's right and what's wrong. Thanks to Frank Louwen for telling us that almost everything we do in daily practice is outdated and that putting women on their backs is an intervention.

Today we're going to build courage as we do hands-on training and learn how to do a breech birth on all fours.

Ruth concluded her introduction with a brief excerpt from the documentary A Breech In The System.
