Michel Odent

Michel Odent is popularly known as the obstetrician who introduced the concepts of birthing pools and homelike birthing rooms at the maternity unit in Pithiviers (France) in the 1960s and 1970s. His ongoing, influential work in childbirth and health research has featured in TV documentaries such as the BBC’s Birth Reborn, and in authoritative medical journals. More recently, he founded the Primal Health Research Centre in London and has developed a preconceptional program to minimize the effects of intrauterine and milk pollution. He is the author of dozens of scientific papers and ten books published in twenty languages.
