Wow, that info on the skyrocketed c/s rate is incredible. Thank you for sharing your sources; really gives credibility to what you are stating, and unfortunately, we bear the burden for obtaining proof. I will start doing the same thing on my blog.


Crazy isn't it! I think a lot of the reason that midwifery knowledge can be discounted is that much of it is intuitive and hasn't been documented as well as it could be. If everyone did kept the kind of records that Ina May Gaskin kept, people wouldn't be so quick to question the safety of homebirth. So I try to find as many facts as I can to back up what I know intuitively to be true.
