Advocating for Better Maternal Outcomes

Over 40 years, Dr. Lindemann delivered 6000 babies with no maternal mortalities, no eclampsia, and no babies with cerebral palsy. He tells his story here of how he did this in a medical environment that really doesn’t provide much of what pregnant women need, especially after they have delivered.

Physicians too often don’t listen to what their patients are telling them. He readily admits that much he learned about safe pregnancy came from his patients, not medical books. His recently published book, Pregnancy Your Way: Have a Safe and Happy Birth provides women with the information about their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period that often is never conveyed to them by their doctors. Information they need to make informed choices about what they want in their pregnancies and deliveries.

Dr. Lindemann has made it his mission to teach women and their families how to create the outcomes they want for their own health and safe pregnancy.
