Reteach Breech

$10,600 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 63 people in 16 months
The bond between a woman, her body and her baby lasts a lifetime. The way we are born is incredibly consequential. A woman's right to choose how and where she gives birth has been under attack for 40 years in the U.S. This unethical restriction on reasonable birth options has contributed to a cesarean epidemic. About 4% of term babies are in the breech position. 
The option of vaginal breech birthing has all but disappeared. Dr. Stu is one of the few practitioners left who not only assists women with this choice by action but actively educates through his speaking and writing. He has been teaching live breech birth to the local midwives in Los Angeles but wishes to reach a larger audience than the intimacy of a single birth can possibly achieve. This year Dr. Stu has been invited to begin teaching hands on training sessions. In order to do so he must acquire a training simulator. The best full birth obstetric trainer is the Model-med Sophie and her mum ( http://www.modelmed.com.au/products/sophie-her-mum/) which, new, costs nearly $12,000. We hope you will help support Dr. Stu in his mission to keep breech birthing skills alive by contributing here.

The Go Fund Me Team has asked that I answer some questions to help calrify my fundraising effort.

1. Who you are: Dr. Stuart J. Fischbein FACOG

2. Where you're from: Los Angeles, CA is my current home.

3. Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for: I am asking colleagues, friends, family and those that support birth choices to contribute to me so that my company, Birthing Instincts, Inc. can use them.

4. How the funds will be used (be specific as possible): They will be withdrawn by me, deposited to Birthing Instincts, Inc  and used to purchase the Sophie and her Mum breech training model (see above link).

Thank you for the amazing work you do, Dr. Stu! As a homebirth midwife here in Colorado, where vaginal breech birth is almost impossible, I am so thankful for doctors like you, who care so much about sharing this vital knowledge.

Without it, I would be left hopeless with a hospital birth that was not the right birth for me.

Dr. Stu, thank you for teaching your skills to others. I look forward to the day when no woman is forced into unnecessary or nonconsensual surgeries. Your work is a wonderful step in that direction.
