The US ranks 28th in infant mortaliy. It's safer to have a baby in Thialand or Cuba. Why? Where's all this science to back up the claim that it's safer to give birth in a hospital? Is it coming from the doctors or the women giving birth? The assumption that women are not informed enough about their own bodies to make their own decisions regarding their own health care is ridiculous. Dismissing responsibilities for our own bodies and letting all of that rest in the healthcare industry is what got us in the messed up health care situation in the first place. Doctors perform a C-Section instead of vaginally birthing a breech baby is one great example of the fear factor taking over. The reason for that is- they are no longer TRAINED to birth a breech baby. They don't know what to do unless it's making a cut- and that's less safe for everyone. Where are the facts people? Read, read, read and be informed!
