New Community Manager for Science & Sensibility!
As regular readers know, Lamaze has been searching for a new Community Manager for this blog. It’s been a rigorous process with many fantastic applicants, each of whom would have brought the blog in great new directions. We had to make a choice and we are thrilled to introduce officially our new Science & Sensibility Community Manager, Sharon Muza, BS, CD(DONA), BDT(DONA), LCCE, FACCE.
Sharon has been an active childbirth professional for over 9 years, teaching Lamaze classes and providing doula services to hundreds of couples through her private practice in Seattle, Washington. She is an instructor at the Simkin Center, Bastyr University where she is a birth doula trainer and a trainer with Passion for Birth, a Lamaze-Accredited Childbirth Educator Program. Sharon is President of REACHE, an annual conference on current childbirth topics in the Seattle area, a co-leader of the Seattle Chapter of the International Cesarean Awareness Network, and a former board member of PALS Doulas. Sharon enjoys active online engagement and facilitating discussion around best practice, current research and its practical application to community standards and actions by health care providers, and how that affects families in the childbearing year. Please join me in giving Sharon a very warm welcome!
Deena Blumenfeld, RYT, RPYT, LCCE, Lisa Baker, BSc (Hon), BEd, LCCE and Kathy Morelli, LPC each deserve round of applause for their wonderful contribution during their one-month stints as “Guest Community Manager” over the past three months.
Many thanks to each and every reader and contributor who adds essential value to the Science & Sensibility community!
