About Dr Fischbein
Dr. Stuart Fischbein, MD OB/GYN has been in practice in California since 1986. He graduated from the University of Minnesota Medical School in 1982. He has a long history of support for Midwives and the midwifery model of care. This interest began during his Cedars-Sinai residency where he had extensive training in vaginal breech and twin delivery. His experience was enhanced while rotating throughLA County-USC Medical Center, at that time the busiest obstetric unit in the country, where he had the good fortune to be exposed to the midwifery model of obstetrical care. After finishing residency Dr. Fischbein was Board Certified by the American Board of OB/Gyn (ABOG)in 1989 and has been a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ACOG) since 1990.
Early in his private practice career he was approached by several local licensed midwives to provide back-up support for women choosing alternatives to hospital based birthing. In 1995 he co-founded The Woman's Place, Inc., an innovative model of collaboration between Certified Nurse Midwives and Obstetricians in Ventura County. In 2004 he co-authored the book Fearless Pregnancy, Wisdom and Reassurance from a Doctor, a Midwife and a Mom, (Fair Winds Press, 2004, 2nd Edition 2010) with long time associate, Joyce Weckl, CNM and writer Victoria Clayton. He has three times been awarded Physician of the Year by the Doulas Association of Southern California and in 2008 received their first Lifetime Achievement Award.
A long time outspoken advocate of a woman's' right to informed consent and refusal and the exercise of her free will, Dr. Fischbein is honored to be on the advisory board of the Santa Barbara Birth Center. He was also a contributor to “Your Best Birth”, a book published in 2009 and authored by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein, as well as the documentary More Business of Being Born. Since 2010, Dr. Fischbein continues to provide direct patient care and attend home and birth center births with his midwife colleagues. He has published two papers and one case report highlighting his experiences and continues to travel and lecture on reteaching breech birth.
Dr. Fischbein has made it his goal to teach, speak and write about the normalcy of birth choices, the ethics of respecting a woman's autonomy in decision making and reasonable, evidence supported options of selected VBAC, breech and twin vaginal birth. Follow him at Dr. Stu's Podcast and on his Blog
