Thanks for posting that. It just infuriates me to read about what the medical community is always trying to do to eliminate their competition.

The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.

My mom brought me the paper just for that article today (we live in metro Detroit). I thought it was very one sided, much more to the medical side. Why didn't they talk to any homebirth midwives? Also they made it seem as if twin pregnancies are automatically high risk, and the L&D of twins MUST happen in the hospital. I know that my midwives have had moms successfully deliver twins at home.

Then the article finishes up with the woman who had her baby girl at home and named her Cinderella. I can hear all the people against homebirths saying "Cinderella...see only crazy people have their babies at home."

Ughhh...thy just want to take away our choices and try to force all women to birth in hospitals.

^^ My thoughts exactly.

I'm also wondering about this:

Quote:
Hedenkamp says there's no evidence that home births are unsafe for healthy, low-risk women and their babies. But doctors note the neonatal mortality rate is 1.9 times higher in home births than those in a hospital, according to the CDC's 2004 statistics.[/b]
Is that even accurate?

I'm pretty sure that statistic is inaccurate, but I'd have to dig for proof.

I can't STAND articles like that one. Poor little OBs, so afraid of midwives stealing all their patients. I'm so proud of being part of that 1% of out-of-hospital births.

Yup. It was sent to me by a friend, the way she made it sound to me was that it was a good article. Then I read it haha.

I gave her the benefit of the doubt when she linked it to me, she's a nursing student.

I can't wait to become part of that 1% this November! I really wish it would just get here already haha.

And UrbanMomma, I wanted to congratulate you on your pregnancy
