Great article about birth center outcomes

Outcomes in birth centers

I am so pleased to see the completion and publication of a study on birth center outcomes.  The results are wonderful and supportive of the choice for low risk women to birth at freestanding birth centers.  I have been blessed to have given birth to both of my wonderful daughters in the presence of certified nurse midwives at a freestanding birth center.  I am so thankful that more and more people are finding value in the midwifery model of care.  I pray that the government and society as a whole will begin to realize the cost containment involved in low intervention wellness based pregnancy and childbearing care.
