Dr. Sarah J. Buckley MD

Sarah Buckley is an Australian family physician, mother of four, widely published writer, and the author of Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering: The wisdom and science of gentle choices in pregnancy, birth, and parenting. Her website provides both a scientific and a personal view of pregnancy, birth, and parenting.

Current articles cover attachment parenting, birth, labor, birth choices, ultrasound concerns, and Elimination Communication. The site also includes a blog, with archives back to August 2005; a bookshop, Sarah's speaking schedule, a subscription page for a future newsletter, and a well-selected list of related resources. A section about her new book includes a video interview, excerpts, and reviews.

"I was excited to discover that many gentle birth and parenting practices that I had instinctively chosen for example homebirth, carrying my baby, and child-led breastfeeding were well supported by evidence from science, anthropology, psychology, and evolutionary medicine. I felt strongly that parents deserve to know this, so that they can distinguish cultural disapproval from genuine risks when they evaluate birth and parenting choices."
