Dr. Robert Biter was one of the best OB allies women have for birth in a hospital setting. Those of you who have read Navelgazing Midwife's blog already know him as Dr. Wonderful - a well-deserved moniker if there ever was one. And he just lost his privileges at Scripps Hospital due, as far as anyone can tell, to OBs who were tired of losing patients to him, and hospital administrators who were tired of his values as well as probably undercutting the bottom line with low cesarean rates.<br><br><a href="http://dou-la-la.blogspot.com/2010/05/rally-for-dr-wonderful-on-mothers-day.html" target="_blank">Here's the scoop</a>. There was a rally today - thrown together insanely fast since this just happened on Friday - so that part of the post is over, but still worth reading to get the full story (well, as much as we know so far) and a birth story that illustrates just why what he does and who he is is so important.
