Women's choices for how and where they want to give birth have been
consistently eroding these last few years. Whether these directives are
coming from medical associations, risk management teams, or malpractice
insurance providers, their impact is affecting the health of mothers and
babies in a negative way. The women's health activist organization,
Our Bodies, Our Selves, together with maternity care professionals, advocates,and consumer groups have
issued a joint statement, Choices in Childbirth A Statement by Physicians,
Midwives and Women's Health Advocates who Support Safe Choices in
Childbirth, calling for health reforms in maternity care. If you agree with
their proposal, add your name to the statement.
