Maternal Health Expert Offers Guidance, Answers Women’s Questions
Too often, women find that the healthcare they receive comes with a lack of clear communication, too little information about their bodies or conditions, and a lack of a personal relationship with their caregivers. Women’s health, bodies, and pregnancies are more likely to suffer without these and other crucial pieces of information in play…yet most women don’t know what questions to ask, or which requests to make of their doctors that will bring about a positive and meaningful impact on their care and their outcomes.
“Rural Doc” Alan Lindemann, M.D., supports women in taking charge of their health and their pregnancies
Now, there’s a doctor women everywhere can rely on to support them in creating the healthy lives and pregnancies they desire: “Rural Doc” Alan Lindemann, M.D.
“I have made delivering healthy babies from healthy mothers my mission in life,” he says.
Four Decades of Practice, More Than 6,000 BabiesDr. Alan is the author of the new book "Pregnancy Your Way: Choose a Safe and Happy Birth." In his nearly four decades as an obstetric physician, he has delivered more than 6,000 babies — with a maternal mortality rate of ZERO! Still active, he now focuses on providing women access to information on maternal health and wellness, offering tips and insights for women before, during, and after pregnancy.
“Too many doctors treat pregnant women like problems, not people,” he says. “They don’t take the time to listen to your story, your concerns, or thoroughly answer your questions. They don’t know how to work with nature, so they’re too quick to induce labor or order a cesarean section, both of which carry significant risks.”
Dr. Alan’s goal is to reach women everywhere who might not otherwise have access to this information. He is inspiring women to learn how to steer their own pregnancies and deliveries, as well as their long-term overall health, with helpful resources at his new website PregnancyYourWay.com.
“Medicine is very political,” he says. “Everything today is touted as ‘evidence-based,’ but research is always biased in some way. For that reason, patients will only hear about how closely their obstetrician follows research studies, as opposed to what they’ve actually learned from practice — which is considered anecdotal and not reliable. Ultimately, obstetricians make decisions for their patients without consulting them. I want to provide women with the information they need to take part in these decisions and take ownership of their health and pregnancies.”
Modern Medicine: What You're Dying to KnowIn addition to "Pregnancy Your Way," Dr. Alan and partner Diane Haugen co-wrote the book "Modern Medicine: What You’re Dying to Know" as a consumer action guide about how to navigate the United States healthcare system.
“Unfortunately,” says Dr. Alan, “today’s fragmented, corporately controlled healthcare system doesn’t do nearly as much as it could or should to help mothers and family members. This book can help people understand how the healthcare system has changed over the past 30 years and provide some insight into how to manage the resulting risks. It’s all about empowering yourself to create the health and pregnancy outcomes that you want.”
Dr. Alan also published a short e-book titled "Safe Pregnancy Explained," a brief introduction to "Pregnancy Your Way." His goal is to reach women everywhere who might otherwise have no access to this information.
