And this is what I had waiting for me at home on facebook. I figured someone must be sending me a message.
Babies deserve the best care they can get said Dr. Kristi Watterberg, neonatologist and lead author of the American Academy Pediatrics recent policy statement on home birth. "And we need to support women wherever they choose to give birth."
Both articles make good points about home birth and we DO need to support women wherever and however they choose to give birth. I hope that more and more states will support our choices to birth our babies at home. I also hope that "baby's caregiver" will remain a suggestion. I know that the midwives around here use doulas would are trained in neo natal resuscitation and that is how it should be.
