greetings fellow mothering folks I am currently with the group OneVoice Treasure Coast, (probably morphing into an ICAN chapter)we walked in solidarity with groups accross the country Frb 14th to voice concern about rising cesarean rates and our own local hospital Martin Memorial's ban on VBACs. The hospital offered to dialog with us regarding their ban on VBAC and we are gearing up for a presentation April 13th, As part of our presentation we have created a petition to...
thanks for the bump...how wonderfully refreshing that was to read, a year and a half later lol, ...wow, so much happens in a year and a half, from just turned 14 to 15 3/4- communicate communicate communicate
that would be great mamacita!!! please email or call on me if theres anything I can do to support you
you did not get this turned around, it would be Bring Back VBAC many hospitals have recently put into place a NO VBAC policy, so even if a mom could find a care provider willing to deliver her vaginally after cesarean(VBAC) she wouldnt be able to because ACOG in all their wisdom has announced that VBACs are not safe unless you are at a level III hospital with the attending care provider(has to be a doctor) on the premises during the whole labor, so the doc has to...
and thankyou Ubertulip for bringing up the fact that there has been little mention of VBAC, if mothers have the right to choose elective cesarean(which I hesitantly support, but INFORMED choice) then they certainly deserve the right to VAGINAL birth with informed choice, even the medical models should see that? ouch Im getting too old for this BS ~mary
BRING BACK VBAC is going to be our 'mantra' at our "rally" and we would love to have anyone of you who is looking for a rally, warm south Florida coast line!!!!! check your bus station fill up the vehicle, I live in Fort Pierce and my door is open! we are meeting in front of Martin Memorial Hospital who has recently announced policy that they no longer 'ALLOW' VBACs it is a sad time...the other hospitals in our area have between 29 and 50% c section rates...
thats always been a touchy subject for me, as an educator when student teaching (at a hospital based healthy start class) I suggested to clients bathing as a choice but the RN teachingthe class was like, absolutely not, hospital policy blah blah blah, but then I later had a homebirth client who transferred, had a cesarean and (successfully) requested her baby not be bathed(an even harder request I wouldassume because of possible blood on the babe) which is really when the...

http://www.fns.usda.gov/wic/lawsandr...dpkg-anprm.htm please please make your comments and opinions known to WIC My comments will be based on my opinion that to supplement/feed a baby with free formula from WIC a mother should need a perscription from her doctor. They will be developing new rules and the deadline for comments is Dec 15 write now!http://www.fns.usda.gov/wic/lawsandregulations/revfoodpkg-anprm.htm
