About the Author
As the father of Eva (12) and Daisy (8), Brian is no stranger to this world of babies and parenting. Both of Brian’s daughters were born by emergency cesarean delivery. Brian assisted his first birth at 19 years old and knew this was his calling. Brian holds a degree in radiology, studied biology and chemistry with an emphasis in pathophysiology and owns BabyVision Ultrasound, San Antonio’s leader in pre-natal imaging. Having worked with over 19,000 expectant families, Brian has taught many childbirth classes and currently teaches the incredibly popular Rocking Dads and Facilitating Fearless Birth. Due to his love of birth and babies, he proudly entered childbirth education as a “Birthing From Within” mentor and San Antonio’s only actively practicing male-doula (or “Dude-La” Brian says, being a surfer from California). Brian and the girls live with their domestic partner Alejandra Rodriguez. “I really love it when the switch is flipped and I know that the new parents really grasp what’s about to happen. That is the moment they are ready to own it!” Brian
