Lisa Marie Sanchez Oxenham has been a birth worker for over 25 years, serving the last 10 as a licensed midwife. She works full time with her husband, Richard, who is currently pursuing his CPM. They specialize in water birth and past trauma, and travel all over Southern California to provide in-home care. Together, they work to include the partner in birth – especially men, who are often mis-portrayed in birth environments in the media. Lisa and Richard support all birthing parties with comprehensive relationship building with a focus on trust. They find that utilizing both men and women in birth seems to really help men – which helps their birthing partners – and dispels the belief that brith belongs only to women. They also believe that water birth is particularly helpful for victims of rape and sexual abuse.
Listen in as we discuss Lisa’s journey and mission, as well as the evidence on misoprostol for induction and details about water birth.
