Lamaze International is offering a Media Award for a birth-related blog. Details are included below.
I'm curious to hear from you: which blog post of mine "best exemplifies blog content that supports the Lamaze mission"? (The mission of Lamaze International is to promote, support and protect normal birth through education and advocacy. We envision for the future a world of confident women choosing normal birth. Lamaze International believes that women who are fully informed, confident and supported will want normal birth. Lamaze International believes that caregivers should respect the birth process and not intervene without compelling medical indication.)
I might choose Biodynamism: Body and Soil. I haven't had time to go through my earlier posts, though, and perhaps there's another post that best represents this blog. So which one(s) would you choose?
And of course, you are welcome to nominate me if you feel so inclined!
Media Award for Birth Bloggers
Each year, Lamaze International presents awards to the best and brightest in childbirth education and advocacy at its annual conference. We are thrilled to announce that for the first time, bloggers will be considered for the annual Lamaze Media Award.

Be recognized for your unique voice and important impact in childbirth education and advocacy.
The winner will receive:
- Publicity in communications to Lamaze members, the public, and the media
- One free registration to the 2009 Annual Conference in Walt Disney World, FL, where the award will be presented
