South Shore MA Improving Birth Rally for Change

September 3rd 10:00

https://www.facebook.com/events/370357219702878/

A national movement is underway to improve birth in America. At least 40 cities across the country are holding a “National Rally for Change” on Labor Day, September 3, 2012, to bring awareness to the alarmingly high rates of medically unnecessary cesarean sections and labor inductions. This campaign, organized by ImprovingBirth.org, seeks to educate and empower women with evidence-based information in order to make truly informed choices regarding their maternity care. “We’re not talking about natural birth, we’re just talking about normal physiological birth”, says Dawn Thompson, president of ImprovingBirth.org. “Every woman should have the right to choose the type of birth she wants, we are just asking for them to be evidence based and fully informed choices.”

This makes me wonder why the rally is being held at South Shore Hospital. Is SSH considered especially good or especially bad for evidence-based birth?

It is being held there because the awesome Stephanie lives in the area and volunteered to host it!
