I'm in Istanbul, although I may give birth in Egypt. Is anyone else in Istanbul or near Istanbul interested in natural birth?
Well, I'm actually American, so i don't know if I count. :) There is an organization that has started here with birthing classes and counseling trying to help women achieve natural birth here. Unfortunately, there is a VERY high cesarean rate and not much knowledge or desire for natural birth here from what I know. Hopefully things are beginning to change.
