Natural birth education in a non-crunchy area

I'm planning to train with Birth Boot Camp as an instructor and am REALLY excited about it. My biggest concern, and a possible hurdle, is that this area's OBs are really unsupportive of natural...

I think it was a combination of everything.  We ended up taking her in and she had a UTI.  Whether it was the cause or the result of the peeing, I don't know.  Things have been better after a course...

Eek. It's actually the baby chest run though, the ingredients listed are eucalyptus oil, lavender oil, and rosemary oil. No turpentine and no camphor.
