Rally to Improve Birth

We spent the morning celebrating birth on Labor Day at the Rally to Improve Birth.  It was great to see so many people turn out with their families!  The posters that seemed most popular were Birth Matters, Know Your Options, Question Your Induction, Informed Consent & Refusal, Evidenced Based Birth, and Vaginal Birth After Cesarean.  We hope we made an impact on some of the people driving by!

I couldn't  say it better than the Founder of ImprovingBirth.org

     “This movement isn’t about natural birth vs. medicated birth.  It’s not about hospital  
      birth vs. home birth or birth center birth.
      It’s about women being capable of making safer, more informed decisions about their 
     care and that of their babies, when they are given full and accurate information about  
     their care options, including the potential harms, benefits, and alternatives. 
    Then, within that choice, they are treated with dignity and compassion.”  
                                                      ~ Dawn Thompson, Founder of ImprovingBirth.org

The rally is about raising awareness that women have the right to be informed of their options before making a decision before, during, and after child birth.
