Pregnancy and Birthing Resources

For the majority of women, pregnancy and birth are normal, natural events which do not require excessive medical intervention, despite our cultural beliefs to the contrary. I encourage every woman of childbearing age to fully research their options for prenatal care, caregivers/birth attendants, and potential locations for birthing. Most American births are in a hospital with a surgeon (Obstetrician) as the primary caregiver, but we have many other options, and there are even options within the confines of a hospital birth which you may choose if you are informed about them.
