Yolande Norris-Clark cut the cord with western medicine after her traumatic first pregnancy and miscarriage at 19 years old. She broke away from the Western test tube of clinical hospitals, foreign metal instruments, and disconnected docs-in-white coats for the pure, serene, natural womb of the home. She has free-birthed eight children onto this planet, choosing to not partake in industrialized prenatal care, instead cultivating mental fortitude through meditation, nature, and independent (un)learning.

Together, we examine our personal traumatic birth stories and unpack the healing potential of free birth. She articulately explains how one can lean into the free birth experience if they feel called to do so. Lastly, we broach why traditional feminism has ignored the uncomfortable theme of birth in the women’s rights movement.

This enlightening conversation pushed me to the edge of my programming around the subject of childbirth and what we collectively deem as an appropriate birth experience to claim the “good” parent badge.

The miracle of life has so many layers, and I’m in awe of ALL parents who make empowered decisions that align with their moral compass and lifestyle. I encourage everyone to listen with an open mind and heart, whatever your childbirth value system may be.

Are you aware of the dangers of EMF exposure in your home, but have no idea where to start when it comes to finding, and fixing them?

Are you concerned about your exposure to the current 3G, 4G, and 5G wireless networks now activated in most major cities?

Have you attempted to test the levels yourself using EMF meters you found online and ended up confused and frustrated?

EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are one of the most toxic elements in our living and work environments. Due to the technical nature of accurately testing for them—and the training required to do so properly—many of us resign ourselves to the fact that we just have to accept them and the consequences they bring in order to use the modern technology we depend on. But you don’t have to.

In this seven-part video documentary series, you will follow world-renowned building biologist Brian Hoyer as he tests an entire home, room by room, to determine the source and level of every known type of EMF.

By the end of this series, you will not only be thoroughly educated on the various types and sources of EMF commonly found in homes but also of the many mitigation tools and techniques available thanks to the cutting-edge technologies.
