I just came across this article about what women aren't being told about childbirth. It summarizes many of the main problems with our current maternity care system.
I met Dr. Eisenstein this spring while I was in Springfield lobbying for midwifery legislation to legalize CPMs. He came down from Chicago to testify in behalf of home birth and midwifery. On the train ride home, I and two other women were able to chat with him. He's a charming, delightful man.
