Henci Goer

Henci Goer, award-winning medical writer and internationally known speaker, is an acknowledged expert on evidence-based maternity care.

Her first book, “Obstetric Myths Versus Research Realities,” was a valued resource for childbirth professionals. Its successor, “Optimal Care in Childbirth: The Case for a Physiologic Approach,” won the American College of Nurse-Midwives “Best Book of the Year” award.

Henci is also the author of “The Thinking Woman’s Guide to a Better Birth,” which gives pregnant women access to the research evidence. She has written consumer education pamphlets and articles for trade, consumer, and academic periodicals.

Henci’s latest project is Childbirth U, a website selling narrated slide presentations at modest cost that will help pregnant women make informed decisions about care.
