Why is it that in this country we have nearly a 50% c section rate and over 50% induction rate? I think it is because women now don't understand their pregnancy and birth and leave it up to doctors to make their decisions for them, when doctors are doing what makes them and the hospital the most money and patient care has gone done majorly. Why do women hear midwife, doula, homebirth and automatically think "hippy"? I think our health care in this area will continue to get worse and worse if women don't get better information, and stop believing their doctor and start listening to their natural instincts.

I guess it's never been thought in this way for me.I have 5 kids & birthed 4 of them.I had plenty of information. We all have a choice.I live in CT & was told about different ways to go about having my children.I honestly am very thankful for the Hospital Team I had I have no regrets.I realize that's not the case for everyone .I think it's to bad that there isn't enough information where you live.Maybe you can get it out there in your Community & find other moms who feel as you do who will help get the word out with you.Good luck!
