Speculum

HEGENBERGER SPECULUM

Improve Postpartum Suturing of Vaginal Tears

Malene Hegenberger, Nurse Midwife, knew there was another way to support women during vaginal repairs. Over her years as a clinician, she had repeatedly wondered if there was an instrument that could hold the vagina open throughout, as this would provide a better opportunity for diagnosing, reducing pain for the patient and significantly shortening the entire procedure. Her vision became a reality! The Hegenberger Speculum enables a better overview of tears, better working conditions for clinicians and a better patient experience.

Journey

BELIEVE IN MIDWIFERY

A PODCAST, A BLOG, A JOURNEY...FOR MIDWIVES, ABOUT MIDWIVES...

Midwives listen to others, we experience and hear the birth stories, the glorious and the traumatic. We are always listening. Every now and then, someone will ask, how did you become a midwife, or WHY did you become a midwife? If you really want to hear their stories, they are all here! I’m just your every day, introverted, reasonable-hippie mom on a mission to tell some stories. When people ask me why or how I do it, my answer is this: “MY MISSION IS GREATER THAN MY FEAR”

BOOKKEEPING FOR BIRTH PROFESSIONALS

What is Happy Homebirth Academy?

Let’s be realistic, is your bookkeeping really a top priority in your business? Do you know how to do it correctly (or have you hired office staff, hoping for the best)? Do you put tracking your income and expenses off, scrambling at tax time and sweating because you can’t remember if you got all your deductible expenses captured and you are just hoping you never get audited?

Imagine a world where bookkeeping wasn’t another burden. Imagine knowing exactly how much you are making, where your money is going each month and having the confidence to make the best decisions for your business. A world where you didn’t sweat tax time – because you know your books are up-to-date and accurate.
