There is spiritual growth that can only come from bearing witness to the transformative event of childbirth. That is why OBGY Nathan Riley radically changed his practice from a medical interventionist model, to a more natural approach that believes in the power of the feminine force. Learning to recognize when NOT to fix a problem, and become the best support possible for nature to do what it does best.
Nathan Riley, MD, is a board-certified OB-GYN and fellow of ACOG who left the medical industrial complex due to his disillusionment with the “standard of care” within the conventional maternity care model. He supports midwives as a collaborative physician for midwives of all varieties in over twenty states. His mission is to uphold midwifery as the art that it is and to honor birth as a sacred process and the transition to parenthood as spiritual transformation.
