Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim
As I start my first Saudi Birth Story blog entry, I came across a horrifying article about an epidural gone horribly wrong. I feel absolutely devastated for the poor women who is suffering due to a "hospital error." I'll let you read the article for yourself, then ask me why I'm so passionate about natural, NON-MEDICATED childbirth.

I am blessed to be the mother of eight beautiful children. I'm happy to say that all were born naturally (which means vaginal delivery with no medical interventions, NO, NOT EVEN PAIN MEDICATION). I totally believe in childbirth education, preparation, and training to manage birth as Allah has created our bodies to do.
I'm thrilled to be a provisional instructor with an American academy for natural childbirth. I offer 12-week classes to pregnant women and their coaches (preferably her husband) to learn about staying healthy and low-risk in pregnancy, as well as training and preparation for labor and birth. My goal is to help as many women as possible achieve natural NON-MEDICATED births. For more information please visit my web page at: Childbirth Classes in Riyadh.
Please support me in spreading the word about this blog and childbirth education and doula services (more about all that in another post, insha'Allah).
