LENDING LIBRARY OF LECTURES for LIDA MEMBERS
There’s a free new service that LIDA is offering to our members: you now have access to a huge lending library of amazing workshop lectures…over a hundred hours (127 to be exact) of fascinating information by the famous names in our profession, from Ina May Gaskin to Deborah Pascali-Bonaro, from Thomas J Hale to Linda Smith, Robbie Davis-Floyd, Michel Odent, Penny Simkin, Dr. Michael Klein… covering a multitude of topics in pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breast feeding. There are talks by famous researchers like Nils Bergmann and Eugene DeClerq, Karen Strange, Marsha Walker and Nancy Rohrbacker, Barbara Hotelling, Debby Amis, Gail Hart, and many many more.
The talks cover topics of huge importance for doulas, educators, lactation professionals and all other birthworkers: from how to understand newborn behavior to grassroots advocacy, from Penny Simkin’s famous lectures on advanced techniques when baby is OP, or supporting women with an epidural, to a lecture on media and marketing by Amy Romano, to online grassroots advocacy by Nasima Pfaffel. There are lectures on shoulder dystocia, on medications for breastfeeding mammas, on home birth by Judy Lothian, on normal birth by the wonderful OB Ricardo Jones and a myriad of other topics. The information is amazing, amusing and astonishing. Each lecture is a gem.
Jackie Levine, in partnership with LIDA, will be lending them free to members for a generous amount of time. The lectures are the equivalent of professional and university level information, and will enrich and expand the knowledge base of every listener. Free access to this huge wealth of information cannot be found anywhere else but through LIDA.
To order a CD, go the list of topics on the LIDA website, choose the one you want to hear, and email your request with your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org The CD comes with a self-addressed return mailer. You can keep the CD for 2 months and then send it back in the pre-paid envelope. It’s a free and flexible service. Take a look at the list of topics, and put your order in!
