OB,L&D Nurses: Ever hear of this author?

  1. Ever hear of Elizabeth Noble? She is a physical therapist who has written books on twin pregnancies and raising twins and on childbirth. I looked up a few of her books on the 'net and I'm not sure I'd agree with a lot of her focus. (I'm pretty much a traditional medicine kinda gal.) What's your opinion on her stuff, if you know of her? (I'm being requested to send a photo of my girls to her for her next publication on multiple births and I'm not sure I want to; need to know more about her.)

    I have read some of her books and articles and find her intriguing as well as very nontraditional ( or, maybe traditional, since some of her practices actually harken to days when we used less medical intervention and more hands-on care)...... I like a lot of what she has to say. I feel we can learn from points of view and ideas vastly different than our own!

    But as to whether I would send pics of my kids ....how did they come to ask YOU? there must be millions of multiples out there to "pick on"....just curious. I am a private person and would balk at having my kids' pics anywhere. Heck, I don' t even post em on the net or have a website for them. That is how private I am. But to each her own. Good luck. :-)

    I never heard of her.

    I'm curious though so I will keep reading this thread.

    I've never heard of her either, so I can't help ya!

    But I have to agree with Debbie, would you really want pics of your kids splattered all over the place? Just feels weird to me. Let Mary Kate & Ashley do the modeling!

    Yeah, my initial thought is .... uh, no.

    She knows a physical therapist in the area who knows me. That's how she got my name.

    Thanks for the input!

    Speaking of twins, my sister was telling me this story. She said her neighbor has a 7 year old daughter, 4 1/2 year old sons who are of course twins. She just told my sister she is pregnant and guess what, it is TWINS.

    Did you know that Mary Kate and Ashley turned 16 recently, like a few days ago, Friday, I think! Makes me feel REALLY old as I remember watching them on Full House when they were just babies!

    Does Elizabeth Noble focus on Medicine or on natural remedies???

    She could be advocating for MidWives.... and they don't beleive in alot of the stuff that goes on at hospitals...
