What Causes Yeast Infection? What Everyone Should Know About Yeast Infection

Nearly all women suffer from yeast infection at some stage in their life. Common symptoms include itching, burning, pain, and discharge. This can happen to both men and women but is much more common in women at child-bearing age. It can also happen pretty much anywhere on your body. So what causes yeast infection and what is it exactly?

Yeasts are microscopic organisms living in you body. When these organisms start to grow, it creates an imbalance that generates yeast infection. The conditions that cause these organisms to grow are multiple. Very often, you will see that women at child-bearing age are at risk. It is because of all the hormonal changes they are going through. It creates an acidity change in their body, which ultimately triggers the infection.

Yeast infection is extremely common. However, when it happens again and again, it shows that something is definitely wrong and you need to find out why it happens so frequently. The causes greatly vary from one person to another. If we talk about the vaginal one, you need to look into the conditions that can affect your vaginal environments.

The first condition is menstruation. It is not unusual for women to have yeast infection before or after their menstrual period. It causes a lot of discomfort. Similarly, pregnancy time is another period where it is common. This is due to the imbalance resulting from the extra-production of blood sugar.

Antibiotics can also be responsible. When you are sick, antibiotics are supposed to kill the \”bad\” bacteria in your body and spare the good ones. Unfortunately it is not always the case and strong antibiotics can also kill some of your \”good\” bacteria, causing an imbalance in your immune system.

These are some examples of factors contributing to the apparition of yeast infection. Before seeing your doctor, you should always try to determine the causes. In most cases, you can find a contributing factor in you daily routine and you can therefore treat your yeast infection naturally.

    Male Yeast Infections

    Understanding Male Yeast Infections

    Yeast infections seems to be thought of as primarily as a \”women\’s complaint\”. A male patient who came into our clinic for treatment with his yeast infection had consulted a medical doctor, only to be told that \”only women get yeast infections\”. Nothing could be further from the truth, male yeast infections are widely and commonly misunderstood.

    In my experience, it is easier for women to discover they have a yeast infection, much more easily than men. Why? Because women are more happy to visit their doctor when their health starts to deteriorate much more quickly than a male will. many guys seem to think they are \”bullet proof\” and continue on feeling lousy until they experience major health problems. Like the 38yr old man who saw me a few years ago complaining of bleeding from the bowel. This symptom occured for over one year before he consulted me, and I immediately called a gastroenterologist I know and made an appointment, who soon after diagnosed bowel cancer in this man. Why did this man not see a doctor earlier? The reply was \”I didn\’t feel any pain and didn\’t think that it was an issue\”.

    Many guys will go through their lives with flatus, gas, burping, diarrhoea or constipation, itchy skin, and a host of other symptoms and think nothing of it. This makes a candida or fungal infection extremely difficult to detect since men are built different than women. Once a woman develops a vaginal discharge, she knows generally that things are probably amiss and visits her doctor. Guys on the other hand (in general) may have absolutely no idea they may have a male yeast infection until it creates other problems in several areas of their body. In most cases, it will be the male\’s partner who alerts him to the fact that something is \”not quite right\” in his private department, because the chances are that she has an infection too. Her doctor, if he does correctly diagnose a yeast infection, will want to treat them both to stop the cross-infection from occurring.

    Common Causes Of Male Yeast Infections

    The most common ways for men to not only get but to maintain a yeast infection are lifestyle and diet. I have found that dietary habits such as beer, alcohol, sweets, chocolate, cookies (biscuits) and various snack and sweet foods are some of the main triggers. Other factors include the use (and abuse) of antibiotics and prescription drugs, sexual relations (without adequate hygeine there after) and stress or burn-out.

    Stress and Burn-Out

    A little know cause of a yeast infection is stress and burn-out (which lowers immunity and causes adrenal fatigue). I can highly recommend that you read my articles on stress, burn-out and adrenal fatigue online as these are some of the most powerful causes in the 21st century of many different health complaints. Men are working harder and under more stress than ever. Guys, are you really looking after your body?

    A weakened immune system allows a yeast infection to proliferate and this will occur by way of several mechanisms. For example, the hormone called cortisol will become low which is vital for a powerful immune response and a body which is slightly acidic will allow a yeast infection to continue unabated. The \”good\” bacteria become weakened and overpowered by the bad bacteria and yeast, allowing an overgrowth to occur in the intestinal tract.

    Snacks Can Lead To Yeast Infections

    Guys are prone to refrigerator snacking, my father was a big man and couldn\’t resist a snack or two most nights. He was always on the hunt for something out of the kitchen cupboards (usually home baking, cookies, a chocolate bar, etc) or out of the refrigerator (ice cream, cold cuts, sausages, left-overs, etc). Dad had a bad case of candida yeast infection and had several trips to the doctor and was also referred to the gastroenterologist due to his constant diarrhoea, gas and bloating. He was always scratching his groin and I can remember the gas and his feet were very offensive to the nose indeed!

    Do you snack? Are the yeasts \”calling your name\” at night or after a meal, are you the guy who wants something sweet quite regularly? Then you will almost certainly have a yeast infection. Bear this in mind: that snack you took from the refrigerator which was left overnight has probably started to grow molds and spores on it. You probably didn\’t warm it thoroughly in that microwave and bingo – you just transferred bugs into your susceptible digestive tract. More yeast, and so the cycle continues on. The yeast parasite demands to be fed on a regular basis and you will more than likely feed it, until you realise you have it, and do something about it. This will only come when you have read about a yeast infection or actually had a stool analysis which screens for candida. You had a BIG problem if your stool test can actually culture candida, which tells me you are passing live and active yeast into your bowel motions.

    These common food products in your fridge are universally contaminated with molds and fungus. We all unknowingly eat them thinking they are perfectly safe, they maybe to those with a strong digestion, but for those with a yeast infection they are food. Yeast is naturally occurring in your body, and it is only when the good bacteria to yeast ratio in your digestive system becomes unbalanced, allowing the yeast fungi to thrive which then spread to other parts of your body.

    Men Who Drink Beer Are More Prone To Yeast Infections And Prostatitis

    You are most probably aware that alcohol is produced by yeast fermentation. Wine has an alcohol content of about 12 percent which is sufficient to kill the yeast. The heat produced to distill spirits like whiskey, vodka and cognac kills any yeast residue. With beer, the alcohol content rarely exceeds 6%, so there is often live yeast left behind. When you drink beer containing live yeast, it can remain live in digestive system and translocate into your body and affect your immune system. Most guys who drink plenty of beer will have their own \”mobile brewery\” happening inside their digestive system.

    Some men never really seem to be affected by this brewer\’s yeast, or are only affected by certain brands of beers, whilst others can start to suffer pretty bad only days after only a few beers. Do you drink beer and suffer from prostatitis? The live yeast can may make your life quite miserable, and it won\’t be until you quit that beer habit for some time that you really notice the connection.

    The type of enlarged prostate from beer consumption is different from other forms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate, or BPH) in that it will subside once the prostatitis (and alcohol consumption) is remedied. At times you may well have prostatitis and yet your Urologist will do all the tests and tell you everything is OK. This can be truly bewildering, especially when the pain is intense. Many cases of prostatitis test negative, and you well could be in pain and discomfort but the lab test say there is nothing wrong. So, if you enjoy a regular good brew, and you suffer from prostatitis, prostate pain, or irritation, it could very well be the yeast residue in your brew that is causing your problems. My advice? If you have a prostate problem AND drink beer, then stop all beer for some time and focus on restoring your digestive system and allow time to eradicate yeast from your system properly.

    Antibiotics

    Incredible as it may seem, some patients I see with yeast infections have been treated dozens of times with an antibiotic. In fact, many cases of yeast infections have their origin after an antibiotic was prescribed by a doctor. Personally, I would never prescribe an antibiotic for a patient, and if I ever did it would be for a case of pneumonia of bacterial origin. Every medical clinic I have worked in, antibiotics are routinely prescribed – even by doctors who have studied natural medicine and who claim to be \”natural doctors\”. It is almost that they fall back instinctively on their \”germ theory\” training and believe that the only way to get a patient right is to \”kill those nasty germs\” with an antibiotic.

    How many times did you go to your doctor for a chest cold, a case of sinus, a skin infection or what ever it may have been, and you were prescribed an antibiotic? You obeyed your doctor and took the prescribed course of antibiotics for ten days, but what you may not have been aware of at the time is that those drugs wiped out significant amounts of beneficial bacteria as well as the bad. You didn\’t kill all the good guys, just lots of them, and you weakened your immune system too. You continued on and discovered that your cough or chest cold went away pretty quick, great you thought to yourself: \”that doctor was right, those drugs did work\”.

    Little did you know that you only weakened your system further, making you increasingly susceptible for a further infection in time. Meanwhile, your life continued on – a beer here or there, the same amount of stress, a few cookies or snacks from the fridge. More beneficial bacteria die and more yeasts start to thrive, the scales are slowly tipped in favour of the bad. Then you get sick again – more antibiotics. The bottom line is that you slide down a slope towards a yeast infection, it does not happen overnight, it happens gradually over a period of time and your immune system gradually gets worn down by the main causative factors along with a constant introduction of molds into your body. That is when you begin to experience some of the symptoms of a yeast infection.

    Common Male Yeast Infection Symptoms

    Common signs and symptoms males experience with a yeast infection are male-associated urinary/sexual problems: jock itch, loss of sex drive, impotence, prostatitis, penis infections, difficulty urinating, urinary frequency or urgency, painful intercourse, sexual dysfunction, a swollen scrotum, etc. Is the male a beer drinker? Suspect candida if he drinks beers regularly and complains of prostatitis, itchy skin, burping, bloating, and other symptoms listed here.

    Other signs and symptoms of male yeast infection are constipation, bad breath, bloating, indigestion, frequent intestinal gas, frequent diarrhea, very loose stools, irritability and mood swings, fatigue or lack of energy, memory loss, dry itchy flaky skin. As I mentioned earlier, the male will also probably develop a craving for sweets, pastas, chips, etc. In addition, check out the signs and symptoms of a candida yeast infection page.

    The Solution To Male Yeast Infection

    The best way to tackle a yeast infection if you are a male is to tackle it systemically, which means you will need to treat the \”whole person\” and not just the presentation. You need the right diet and lifestyle. Stay with your walking program, and do seek professional help if need be

      Buy Bethroot For Birthroot Midwifery, Coughs and Other Benefits

      Bethroot – Birthroot Trillium

      Trillium erectumLiliaceae (lily family)

      Bethroot, wakerobin, squawroot, purple trillium, red trillium, Indian balm, and stinking Benjamin are just a few of the common names for this striking plant. The common and genus name, from the Swedish trilling, refers to the plant\’s most conspicuous feature: its three large leaves. The species name, erectum, reflects its habit of shooting straight up. By any name these lovely wildflowers are welcome harbingers of spring.

      Birthroot trillium, which can grow two feet tall, is one of about thirty species of low, perennial, woodland herbs in this genus, primarily native to North America, the Himalayas, and East Asia. Besides their three wavy leaves, these unusual plants have a single deep-red flower with three sepals and three petals that ripens in late summer to a deep-red three-celled berry. The flowers are usually visited and pollinated by flies.

      In the wild, Bethroot grows in rich woodlands from Ontario and Nova Scotia south to Florida, and west to Michigan. Among its relatives, painted white trillium, Trillium undulatum, grows almost twenty inches tall, is found in the same areas, and favors the same soil. Dwarf white trillium, T. nivale, has a more southerly range, and generally grows about six inches tall. Toadshade trillium, T. sessile, with purplish-brown flowers, grows about a foot tall and is found across the southern part of the United States. Another southerner is whippoorwill flower, T. cuneatum, which grows about ten inches tall and has a mottled dark maroon flower.

      Traditional uses:

      Native peoples used each of these trillium species medicinally for menstrual problems, to induce childbirth and aid labor, for menopause, and as a general uterine tonic. The whole plant was poulticed on wounds, inflammations, ulcers, and tumors. Root decoctions were used by the Menomini to reduce eye swellings and irritation and by the Chippewa to treat rheumatism. Canadian tribes chewed the roots to relieve the pain of snakebite. Trillium roots were rioted antiseptics and astringents, used for centuries to treat menstrual problems, diarrhea, coughs, asthma, and night sweats Early physicians used these trusted botanicals to treat difficult breathing and chronic lung disorders, skin irritations, snakebite, and poisonous stings Trillium teas were once included in formulas to treat diabetes.

      Modern uses:

      The roots of birthroot trillium contain a steroid saponoside, trillarine, used by modern herbalists to treat heavy menstrual and intermenstrual bleeding, helping to reduce the flow. It continues to be a valuable tonic in facilitating childbirth and for treating uterine fibroids. A douche of birthroot is helpful in treating excessive vaginal discharge and yeast infections.

      Cautions:

      Do not take during pregnancy except under professional supervision. The trilliums are on the protected-species list in many states and should not be dug from the wild. As responsible gardeners, we can work to increase these native plant populations by cultivating and propagating them and buying plants from reliable nurseries.

      Growth needs and propagation:

      Trilliums require fertile, moist soil and partial shade to prosper. Following standard practices, root divisions and seeds easily propagate them. It is easiest to purchase healthy young plants from growers or nurseries specializing in cultivating native species.

      Companions:

      This striking trillium accompanies most of the shade-loving plants in the herbal garden, especially Indian turnip, blue cohosh, bloodroot, and ginseng.

        Cinnamon Health Benefits Come From High Antioxidant Content

        You may love the warm flavor that cinnamon adds to food dishes. But did you know that this ancient spice is loaded with antioxidants and incredible health benefits?

        Cinnamon has one of the highest antioxidant levels of any spice, and many foods, too. You\’ll get as many antioxidants in one teaspoon of cinnamon as a full cup of pomegranate juice or a half-cup of blueberries, two foods known for their antioxidant content.

        Nutritional Content of Cinnamon

        Beyond antioxidants, cinnamon is also rich in natural compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols appear to mimic the action of insulin and may help regulate blood sugar levels. That\’s great news for people with diabetes. Cinnamon is also a good source of the minerals manganese, iron, and calcium. Cinnamon\’s unique healing abilities come from three basic types of components in the essential oils found in its bark. These essential oils are potent antibacterial and antifungal stimulants.

        Cinnamon health benefits include relief from a variety of health disorders, including diarrhea, arthritis, menstrual cramps, yeast infections, colds, flu, rheumatism and digestive problems. Cinnamon has found a prominent position in traditional healing medicines such as Ayurveda (the traditional Indian medicinal system).

        Specific Cinnamon Health Benefits

        Type 2 Diabetes. Several studies suggest that cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type-2 diabetes and hypoglycemia.

        Studies have found that cinnamon contains certain polyphenols, or antioxidants, that help activate insulin and transport glucose. Cinnamon may significantly lower LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol and triglycerides as well.

        Arthritis and Inflammation. Cinnamon health benefits include powerful anti-inflammatory properties. It helps in relieving the pain and stiffness of muscles and joints. Cinnamon is commonly recommended for arthritis.

        Anti-Microbial and Anti-Fungal Activity. Studies have indicated that cinnamon oil and cinnamon extract have antifungal, antibacterial and antiparasitic properties. Cinnamon has been found to be effective in fighting vaginal yeast infections (Candida), oral yeast infections, stomach ulcers and head lice.

        Cinnamon Boosts Brain Function. Cinnamon stimulates the activity of the brain and qualifies as an excellent brain food. Studies found that chewing cinnamon-flavored gum, or just smelling cinnamon, improved memory and performance of certain tasks.

        Encouraged by the results of these studies, researchers now are interested in cinnamon\’s potential for enhancing brain function in the elderly, possibly even patients with Alzheimer\’s and other degenerative neurological diseases.

        Cinnamon Protects Against Heart Disease. Cinnamon health benefits include potent anti-inflammatory properties that are helpful in the prevention of heart disease. Cinnamon also improves your circulation, due to the presence of a blood thinning compound. Good blood circulation ensures oxygen supply to your cells, leading to higher metabolic activity and further protection against heart disease.

        Blood Purification. Cinnamon helps in removing blood impurities, and is often recommended for pimples.

        Infections. Due to its antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral and antiseptic properties, it is effective on external as well as internal infections. It helps in destroying germs in the gall bladder and bacteria in staph infections.

        Healing. Cinnamon helps to stop bleeding, and facilitates the healing process.

        Indigestion. Besides adding flavor to your food, cinnamon also aids your digestion. It\’s very effective for indigestion, nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, diarrhea and flatulence. It also relieves acidity, diarrhea and morning sickness.

        Respiratory problems. Cinnamon helps in cold, flu, influenza, sore throat and congestion.

        Menstruation. Cinnamon is effective in providing relief from menstrual discomfort and cramping.

        Diuretic Effects. Cinnamon is diuretic in nature and helps in secretion and discharge of urine. It is also believed that cinnamon aids in the secretion of breast milk.

        Cancer Prevention. In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the growth of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.

        Cinnamon reduces your risk of colon cancer by helping to remove excess bile in your digestive tract and prevent the damage it can cause to colon cells.

        As you can see, cinnamon health benefits are numerous. Adding this incredible spice to your diet means that you\’ll get an extra hit of antioxidant protection for your body.

          How Does a Yeast Infection Normally Show Up in Women?

          Identifying yeast infections in women is really not too hard. To be completely honest, the signs and symptoms that show up are pretty distinctive, but despite that you should never, ever jump the gun and start treatment unless you have a confirmed diagnosis. If you make the mistake of attempting to treat yourself for a yeast infection that isn\’t really there, you\’ll find that it could end up causing even more problems – and may even actually lead to you developing an actual yeast infection instead!

          One of the first symptoms that you\’ll probably notice is the discomfort. Generally speaking, this discomfort is not normally extremely painful (unless in some very serious cases), but because it is constantly there it can become unbearable pretty quickly. Normally, you will find that you feel an itching sensation accompanied by burning at times around the outer area of your vagina, and even extending to its internal parts.

          If you start to feel anything like this, the next thing that you need to pay attention for is a discharge. Most people describe it as resembling \’cottage cheese\’, but it could be either watery or chunky. Should you notice a vaginal discharge that is off-white, then that is probably what you are essentially looking for.

          Coupled with all of this, you will definitely notice that the area around your vagina is inflamed. While the intenseness of the inflammation will vary, even a mild inflammation is a telling sign. In some of the more severe cases of yeast infection, the vagina could actually become so inflamed that it turns a distinct shade of purple, but more commonly it will take the form of some shade of red.

          On occasion, there may even be white clumps that appear here and there.

          Finally, there is the smell. Frankly, this is one of the aspects of yeast infection that most people hate the most, and the fact of the matter is that your affected area is going to be giving off a smell that can only be described as starchy. It isn\’t really all that unpleasant, and will probably not smell foul or anything like that. Instead, it may remind you of the smell of freshly baked bread, or beer.

          As you can see, there are many tell tale signs that come hand in hand with yeast infections for women. Although self diagnosis is still not recommended, should you notice any combination of these signs it would definitely mean that you should head over to a doctor and consult with them. Get a firm diagnosis – then begin treatment!

            You Don\’t Have to Be One of the 70% That Get Yeast Infections!

            70% of women will end up with a yeast infection at some point in their lives. When I found that out I was shock by that staggering number. No wonder that there are a seemingly endless amount of over the counter treatment options available for home treatment. The problem with these is that they will only relive the symptoms of your yeast infection, not the root cause. On the other hand organic and all natural cures will not only relieve your symptoms but will also cure the actual infection.

            There are many reasons that you may end up with a yeast infection. Some infections can be from an auto immune response to stress or even not getting enough sleep. But most often the problem lies with life style issues such as wearing clothes that are too tight and made of material that doesn\’t breath; or even wearing a bathing suit that is damp for too long.

            But really, do you know what a yeast infection is? Yeast infections are nothing more than a simple overgrowth of the yeast that can be found naturally inside the body. Yeast becomes a problem when it grows too quickly and begins to irritate the skin. Some of the symptoms that are associated with these infections are: painful swelling in the vaginal area, a foul smelling discharge that may be white or yellow, intense itching and a burning feeling.

            Some women have had success with two different types of treatments. One is yogurt while the other is apple cider vinegar. The yogurt can be used in 2 ways- either wearing a tampon that has had yogurt applied to it, or even rubbing the yogurt onto the skin that hurts. Apple cider vinegar on the other hand can be mixed with water and made into a wash.

            In closing, the last thing that we can recommend is to drink plenty of water. This means that you should be drinking 8 glasses of water that are 8 ounces every day. This will help to flush all of the bacteria out of your body and again this should speed up your recovery time.

              What is a Yeast Infection?

              The term yeast \”infection\” can be a little misleading. The word infection is usually used when there is an overgrowth of bacteria in the body. With yeast infections, however, there is also an overgrowth although instead of bacteria like a typical infection a yeast infection is an overgrowth of the naturally occurring yeast in the body.

              Every person has a certain amount of yeast naturally in their bodies and normally it just plugs along doing its think and not causing any problems. However, when the conditions in the body are right the yeast can begin to grow out of control until it leads to a yeast infection. The most common type of yeast infection is the vaginal yeast infection. Although they are more often diagnosed in women, men can also get yeast infections, and they can be transmitted between partners during intercourse.

              If the yeast infection is not treated or if the immune system is not functioning as well as it should be the yeast can continue to grow unchecked and can lead to a systemic yeast infection. In this case rather than the yeast overgrowth being confined to one part of the body it affect the entire body and can lead to some nasty symptoms.

              Symptoms of vaginal yeast infections usually consist of intense itching, discharge, painful urination and pain during intercourse. Systemic yeast infections have a wide variety of symptoms that are often vague and difficult to pinpoint. Some common symptoms of systemic yeast overgrowth include fatigue, bloating, gas and abdominal cramps, diarrhea, constipation, difficulty losing weight, insulin resistance, anxiety, mood swings, memory loss, chronic fatigue, \”brain-fog\”, depression, insomnia, hives, eczema, profuse sweating, psoriasis, nail fungus, moderate to severe PMS symptoms, thyroid disorders, pancreatic disorders, extreme fatigue, muscle weakness and cramping, tingling or numbness in your fingers, feet and toes and sugar and carb cravings. If you have a yeast overgrowth in your body you may experience only some of these symptoms or you may experience them all.

              Yeast infections can usually be treated at home successfully, although you should be certain that you have a yeast infection and not a vaginal infection or other illness before you attempt to treat it yourself.

              Over the counter yeast infection creams are not always affective in treating yeast infections and can leave some resistant yeast behind. With the less resistant yeast out of the way that leaves plenty of room for the resistant yeast to grow and thrive. Than, the next time that you get a yeast infection and attempt to use a cream to treat it there will be even more resistant yeast than the first time around and the cream will be even less effective. Because of this overusing OTC yeast infection creams can lead to chronic, recurring yeast infections that become quite difficult to treat.

                Young Moms: Making Childbirth Education Relevant toThem

                Okay – so you know young people, right? You\’ve raised kids. You\’re hip and up-to-date. Then why is it so hard to reach that 17-year-old student in prenatal class?

                1) She is tired. She is not used to having classes or meetings at nighttime. She has school tomorrow. She had school all day. Don\’t waste any of her time.

                2) She is not thrilled about being a pregnant goddess. She feels fat, ungainly and ugly, not luminous and beaming with glorious motherhood. Even IF she is wearing hip, tight maternity clothing and looks fabulous to you.

                3) She was not trying to get pregnant. She may not have a supportive partner. She may be living at home with her parents. She may not have money for trendy baby gear. She probably feels isolated at school from her peers and definitely from her pregnant, suburban peers at prenatal class.

                4) She does not talk about \”gross\” intimate stuff with her boyfriend or anyone. Pooping while pushing, mucous plugs, breasts, vaginal exams, \”discharge\” will either make her giggle with embarrassment or wish she were dead.

                5) She thinks your carefully chosen, expensive videos and resources are hopelessly out of date and full of old, funny looking people. Sorry!

                So what can you do?

                Acknowledge the above points, in your approach, your language and your interaction with these moms. It is a fine line to navigate, but try to avoid the pitfalls of being either patronizing, preachy, or worse, painfully \”hip\” and with-it in your approach. You know what I mean.

                She doesn\’t need to think you are cool. She probably won\’t. You probably aren\’t. It definitely doesn\’t matter. You want to be the one who gave her non-judgmental support and information: about her body, her abilities and her power. That is what she\’ll treasure you for.

                Acknowledge that the videos might be boring. Try to avoid the parts with long interviews with moms wearing those big 80\’s eyeglasses. Stick with the birth scenes themselves as much as you can. Try to have a few births with young looking moms. Women giving birth are timeless.

                Don\’t expect her to participate in class or throw out questions or comments. She is used to a different kind of education. If you are friendly, non-threatening and willing to spend extra time, you just might find that she is one who lingers after class to chat. She might be the one who calls with her birth story. She might be the one who borrows the \”Active Birth\” book. And she\’ll probably be the one that gives you the glowing evaluation. Maybe.
