About Us


Dr. Stuart Fischbein

Stuart James Fischbein, MD was Board Certified in 1989 by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and became a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology in 1990. He was a practicing obstetrician in Southern California since completing his residency in 1986. In 2022 he also became licensed in Utah where he now does virtual consultations and teaches breech workshops around the world. While well trained at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the standard medical model of obstetrics he had the respect and vision to support the midwifery model of care and served as a backup consultant to many home and birthing center midwives for 25 years. In 1996 he founded The Woman’s Place for Health, Inc., a collaborative hospital-based practice of Certified Nurse Midwives and Obstetricians in Ventura County, California. 

Midwife Blyss Young

Blyss Young, LM CPM, is a home birth midwife, childbirth educator, placenta encapsulator and natural birth and family consultant. Her practice is based in Santa Barbara, California but she is available for consultations and mentorships worldwide. Through her guidance and love centered approach she supports families to birth in the ways that they feel most empowered. She is a firm believer in intuition, the sacredness and ritual of birth and the power of autonomy in birth. She has been fortunate to learn the art of midwifery in addition to the unique skills of delivering Breech, Twins and VBACs. At the heart of all of her work is a deeply rooted belief in the brilliant design of the human body and the symbiotic relationship between baby and parent. She continues to strive to support the sacredness of birth as a rite of passage, in the hopes to resurrect lost traditions that can bring connection to our high tech low touch lives. Her passion for birth has lead her into establishing the Bridge Midwives Project, a 501c3 bridge program to support the archival and revival of the traditional art of Midwifery.
