'Filing for your baby’s birth certificate is now your responsibility, however some midwives will do it for you.'
I cannot believe that filing your own birth certificate is listed as a 'Con'. They were really reaching here. My midwife does it anyway but I don't see 'don't have to fill out paperwork when you get to the hospital and are in labor' as a Pro. Seems like a very minor detail to get worked up about. It really has nothing to do with 'Birth'.
Complications can result if your midwife or caregiver is unsure what to do in an emergency situation. Selecting an experienced birthing team is absolutely crucial.
Hmm...I'd think this would be 'crucial' regardless of the setting.
Overall, nothing earth shattering. I kind of expected more...seems like something that could have been written by a highschool student. No disprespect to JM....just seems like not very much info and a lot of cut and pasting!
