    Now that Dr. Brooks is gone back to AU, there are almost zero doctors who know how to support natural birth here. (If you want hooked up to an IV drip and epidural and stuck in lithotomy position then this is a fine place as any I suppose). As part of the Beijing Better Birth discussion group I’ve met lots of pregnant and new moms. So I do know two bold women who felt like birthing on all fours, and some staff got very upset (one Chinese doctor walked out, other Western doctors had told them in advance that they would “not allow” it). Kathi the childbirth educator was there to catch the baby for at least one of them, I forget at the moment who caught the other baby. Hospital personnel were less than accommodating for both mothers and simply would not take part in this type of birth, it seemed. This made it stressful the moms, who only wanted the freedom to follow her body’s cues and urges.
