“This movement isn’t about natural birth vs. medicated birth. It’s not about hospital birth vs. home birth or birth center birth.
It’s about women being capable of making safer, more informed decisions about their care and that of their babies,
when they are given full and accurate information about their care options, including the potential harms, benefits, and alternatives.
Then, within that choice, they are treated with dignity and compassion.”
~ Dawn Thompson, Founder of www.ImprovingBirth.org
