I found this fantastic blog several months ago, then lost the address and wasn't sure if I'd ever find it again. Well, here it is: FPMama. She's a family doc who attends hospital births and writes about them. This physician is very respectful of normal birth physiology and does things quite differently than the Standard American Birth (she advocates mother-directed pushing, no mother-baby separation, very hands-off, etc). It's interesting to read how often, this doctor wants her clients to have peaceful, non-interventive, natural births--but the clients demand the medicalized care. It would be a hard place to be in, knowing how certain interventions are likely to lead to less-than-desirable outcomes, but not being able to convince your clients otherwise. The story "A Tale of Two Friends" illustrates this quite well.
Two of her recent posts are particularly good reads: "The Epidural Queen" and "What If You Never Saw a Birth Like This?"
