Human Right: Childbirth

Women, babies and family’s are having their rights taken away consciously or unconsciously.

Persecution of birth attendants and lessening options for birthing women is taking away basic human rights. The rights for a family to choose, where and with whom they birth.

Blog Talk Radio is a great show and today’s was about a Midwife in North Carolina named Rowan Bailey who has been arrested.

Realize that our maternal and infant mortality rates in the United States are worse than 47 other developed countries. Home births are less than 1% of births in the U.S., which means the majority of deaths are from births that were in hospitals.

Why then, are Midwives charged and arrested, when doctors and hospitals are quietly ‘excused’ from this?

How does this make you feel, that your right for an out of hospital birth could be taken away?
