Have you guys seen this??  http://www.ImprovingBirth.org/

 

Is anyone planning on joining the rally?  I'm totally onboard, I can't wait!

No rally near me and I don't have the time or energy to coordinate one. If there was one, I would have gone!

What an interesting idea!  I'll be on a mini-vacation with the old man and the littlest kid that weekend, but it looks like a great idea.

 

Ironically, the rally in my town is taking place at the hospital that is <sarcasm font> affectionately </sarcasm font> called "The Baby Factory" because they pump out so many kids and have their own "we-are-not-changing-a-thing-for-you" system.  My cousin recently had a baby there and the second I got the call that she was going in for elevated BP I told my aunt to start feeding her, get her moving out of the bed, gear her body up to vaginally deliver.  She ended up with a section due to prolapse, but I really wonder if the hospital is still at fault. :(  Breaking waters before the baby is even engaged is such a horrible idea!

AQ - So sorry about your cousin... Things have to change, we can't keep messing with birth this way.  :(
