I need links on Episiotomys vs Tearing. Also I need links with stats on ob's stats vs midwifery stats in regards to c-sections, infant mortality etc. I am in a debate at a mainstreqam forum and I am not finding much. I wish I could post my books!

here are some sites I have bookmarked from my own reading/reasearching natural birth and homebirth. You may find what you need via these sites. Some were given to me by other mamas here, too.

There is some good information on episiotomy and tearing here:

http://www.hencigoer.com/obmyth/epis.html

and here:

http://www.gentlebirth.org/archives/...rotection.html

I believe hospitals keep their own stats on c-secs, etc., as do private practitioners, but there is no comprehensive all-inclusive database for keeping records on these things. Which is a shame, because then it makes researchers' jobs that much harder (and that much easier for the medical establishment to keep deluding itself.)

Here are a couple of links to the studies that have been done on homebirth:

My midwives have a website, and a link to a big birth center vs. hospital birth study, if you're interested in that. www.maternitycenter.com
