    There is a group getting together on Sunday, 9 Nov at 1:00 pm at the Parish House next to the Orthodox Congregational Church of Lanesville/1120 Washington St/Gloucester:

    If you plan on attending, please RSVP to salstacy@hotmail.com. There also is a request for a digital camcorder, if anyone could bring one along.

    And if you cannot join the letter writing group, please write a letter from home! The information you need is all found on the facebook page.

    Thanks for blogging about us! Here are a couple of updates:

    1. We’re having an organizing meeting at 10 a.m. this Sunday at Crunchy Granola Baby in Salem. Please come if you can!

    2. We’re holding a rally on November 18 in front of the North Shore Birth Center. We’re starting at 6:30 a.m.–that’s early, I know, but the board of directors meets at 7 a.m., and we want to be there as they drive onto the hospital campus.

    We’re also looking for a few people to serve as volunteer coordinators from now through November 18. Any takers? It’s a short-term job, but it could have a huge impact! Email us at savethenorthshorebirthcenter@gmail.com if you can help or to request more info.

    We’ve heard from a trusted source that Bill Donaldson, head of risk management at Beverly Hospitals, has publicly stated on more than one occasion that–if it were up to him–the c-section rate would be 100%.

    This, presumably, due to his way of reacting to liability concerns. The issues relating to the recommendation to close the NSBC seem to stem in large part from the decision to self-insure and the over-reaction of the risk managers.
