NATHAN RILEY, MD

Natural Birth; Natural Death

I am a physician and environmentalist who participates in all aspects of mortality. The impermanence of life informs my care of people and our planet. Death is coming; death is natural. Birth should likewise be seen as a natural process, an inevitable construct of our species. I support physiologic birth, and I honor physiologic death. I am a naturalist, and I feel that healing our society - spiritually and physically - starts with accommodating rather than replacing the homeostatic tools that have permitted our planet and species to thrive together for the relatively short period of human existence. Kindness also helps. I am also a feminist, and my support of birth is informed by my admiration for the healing powers of the feminine, a position for which I am thankful to the many strong women in my life. 

Memento mori; amplexati sunt nativitatis. The cycle continues.
