Where’s the disconnect? Why can good midwives, and I’m sure some obstetricians too, safely achieve a 95% natural birth rate while the natural birth rate in America at large is below 2%? I respect women’s rights to make an informed decision to choose pain relief during labor. When will women who desire a natural birth be given the same respect and support by medical professionals? Unnecessary procedures during labor and birth put the health of moms and babies at risk, waste money, and deny women of the sacred experience of birthing naturally. If you support a woman’s right to a natural birth, please share this infographic.
