Dr. Fred Duhart, St. Louis home birth physician

I just saw that Dr. Fred Duhart, a family physician in St. Louis who attended home births for 38 years, recently passed away. Read more about his life and career catching babies here.


  1. Rixa,

    I read the article too and was so moved that I decided to write a letter to the editor, which I posted to my blog.

    Too bad there are more doctors like this man. What a shame. Too bad he had no apprentice.

  2. What a special person he was...he caught two of my babies. He had a lot of tricks up his sleeve to use to keep women from having c-sections and was very non-interventionist. What a loss, wish he had had an apprentice!
