Great pro-home-birth article by Yale professors, OBs

Take a look at this really great, pro-midwifery, pro-home-birth article in The New Haven Register by a team of Yale professors, midwives, and doctors. 

Here’s how it starts:

RECENT reports have focused on the rising trend of home births and, unfortunately, many stories have zeroed in on a few tragic situations.

Although we recognize there is a contentious, ongoing debate about the safety of home birth, and we offer our concern and condolences to any parents suffering tragic loss, we are disappointed in the media’s continued implication that all midwifery care is somehow perilous.

It is puzzling that these stories often do not cite well-documented evidence about outcomes of the practice of midwifery in the United States, nor invite representatives of the American College of Nurse-Midwives or the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives to comment.

Its title? “Media Out of Focus on Midwifery.” Too true! Overall, it’s short but full of good, logical, calmly-stated arguments, and the fact that the authors include two OBs and a midwife is a huge advantage. Go read the rest!
