    Jeannie, what an amazing story you posted about your life-very happy for you and the little one to come along if this has not happened yet- This blogging is all new to me and I’m not sure if I am doing this right but I guess I will find out- so I will make this short and if I hear from you I will be shall I say more informative-I live in the N.W. and it is very cold out here to say the least with snow on the way-which I detest- Hope to hear from you and we will continue on!

    Hello Jeannie,

    I was sent the link to your blog by Al who is an old friend. When I read you were considering another home birth I thought I would share our experience. Aaron, my oldest son was born in January ‘68, delivered at Art Risley’s house on Roosevelt Lane in the canyon by Dr. Henry G. Bieler who was the only Dr. at the time that would do home delivery. If you put a personal ad in the Laguna paper and ask if anyone was delivered or had their baby delivered by Dr. Bieler I am sure you’d get a least a dozen replies. He practiced out of his home in Capistrano Beach and wrote two books, ‘Food is Your Best Medicine’ and ‘The Natural Way to Sexual Health’. He developed a diet for pregnant mothers that would prepare the body for time of labor. He was an endocrinologist ( as well as an artist, musician, and wood carver) that used diet to rebuild and replenish the body when it became toxic. I considered him to be one of those that are mystics in their field.
    At the same time we (my wife Sheila and I) met Fran Mineo who had developed a child birthing technique based on the Lamaze method from France. It focused on breathing and diaphragm and learning to consciously relax during contractions. Again, there are probably many mothers still in that area that went to her. Sheila learned to teach Childbirth Without Pain (what Fran called it) and taught a few hundred mothers over the next ten years. One idea that Fran had was to wet clean towels, wrap them in foil and put them in the freezer. During labor we would take them out pop them into the oven to thaw out and warm up and they made excellent compresses.
    After the birth of Aaron and the guidance of these two great people when Josh came along two years later we did it ourselves at home, just Sheila and I ( watched by Shanti our 31/2 year old girl) and everything went fine.
    All the best to you and Chad, Peter

      I too had a baby delivered by Dr. Bieler in Laguna Beach in 1968. I think this would make a great documentary film. I’m actually producing/writing a script about my life as a hippie in LB and there are scenes about Dr. B delivering two different little girls, mine and a friends. I’d love to get a photo of him so I can cast someone who looks similar. Do you have one. Please e-mail me when you can. Thanks, Pilar

        Hello, Pilar,

        I chanced upon your post above while searching for Art Risley, who you probably remember from your LB days. I wasn’t part of that scene, but had similar experiences on East Coast, at roughly the same time. I now live near Laguna Beach, and spend a lot of time there, mostly playing music on the corner of Forest and PCH.

        I’d love to see your film!

        I wonder if you were friends with people involved with the Brotherhood at that time…

        Are you aware of Nick Schou’s Orange Sunshine book, and William Kirkley’s film (in production) by the same name?

        I see you have a FB profile, so I’ll send this msg via that too..

        All the best, – Warren

        I’d love to see your film!

        I wonder if you were friends with people involved with the Brotherhood at that time

    You are pregnant!!?? Wow, that is so exciting! I’m so happy for you…learning that other women are pregnant or having babies makes me want another one! I’ll have to keep up on your blog to see what’s going on with you.
    Oh, Lily talks now…a little…it’s too cute.

    I was looking up information on Dr. Bieler babies and happened on this site. I was brought into this world in 1951 by Dr. Bieler a wonderful genious of a man. I have to say I owe my strong bones, and healthy body to Dr. Bieler and my mother, and aunt who found Dr. Bieler. Looking for other Bieler babies and any information that they may have to share about their health and lifestyle. I have been negligent in my eating habits over the years but I am ready to return to Dr. Bieler’s diet.
    I wish my husband felt the same way. His health would improve significantly, plus we could share a long, healthy life together.

      I just fell into this website and your comments on being delivered by Dr. Bieler. I had a daughter born in 1968 who was delivered by him in Laguna Beach Califonia. Would love to have a contact of your mother. I’m making a film about my life and including the character of Dr. Bieler. I may also get around to doing a documentary on him. So I’d love to be in contact with as many people who knew him. Thanks. I hope you get this, Pilar Walsh

      1. Livia Says:

        Pilar, I am very late in finding this post. I was a childhood patient of Dr. Bieler’s. He was an awesome doctor and person. Did you ever do a documentary about him? I would love to learn more about him.

    Hi, Jeannie! It was nice to meet you at at the La Le Che league on 16th. This is Yoshie, the Japanese mom of two, 4 years old boy and 1 year old girl. I saw your “100 things about me” and you are such an intresting woman! I’ve never read such an exciting profile before. I am looking forward to see you at the next meeting. By the way, do you attend an attachment parenting meeting, too?

  16. excellent submit, very informative. I ponder why the opposite experts
    of this sector do not understand this. You must proceed your writing.

    I’m confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  17. I needed to thank you for this wonderful read!
    ! I certainly loved every bit of it. I have got you book marked to look at new stuff you post…

    If you hear damaging comments, better to avoid them. Currently,
    there are many treatment centers are available so help people who are facing
    with these issues. Frequently vomiting can cause a vast number of side
    effects, such as tooth decay, mouth ulcers, heart problems and muscular weakness.

  19. Lamont Says:
