I really wish I'd read this just a few days ago - I would've been there for sure. I'm a student at BYU and my husband and I are waiting just a ocuple of years for children, but I know about the birthing center and know how wonderful it is.
BYU just had a seminar a week or so ago called Birthing - It's YOUR Choice. They had a midwife speak, I believe, among others. I didn't attend as I was working, but I was very glad to know that she would be there! It seems as though all the young LDS mothers are eager to induce at a hospital and circ their baby boys immediately and then start them on formula. It makes me very sad to think of the chances that these small infants are missing out on that could affect them for life.
Is there anything that could be done post-meeting? I'd like to know how it panned out.
