Author Biography
Leboyer, Frédérick (Author)
Frédérick Leboyer was born Alfred Lazare Levy in Paris, France on November 1, 1918. He graduated from the University of Paris School of Medicine. During World War II, he and his older brother changed their name to Leboyer to avoid detection as Jews by the occupying Nazis. After the war, he worked in a hospital and then opened a private practice. He began questioning modern obstetrics in the late 1950s and became an advocate for natural birth methods. His book, Birth Without Violence, was published in 1974. He stopped practicing medicine and dedicated himself to photography and film. He wrote several books including Loving Hands and Inner Beauty, Inner Light. He died on May 25, 2017 at the age of 98.
