Sign the premmie petition!

The March of Dimes notes a sharp rise in what they call Late Prematurity. Babies who are almost term, but not quite. They attribute this, in large part, to the increase in inductions in the US.
One of their points on this petition is

3. We call on hospitals and health care professionals to voluntarily assess c-sections and inductions that occur prior to 39 weeks gestation to ensure consistency with professional guidelines.

I'd like to invite you to join this effort by signing the petition. Click here to read the short petition.

Changing the Earth by supporting Birth

Mothers bring forth life; medical corporations do not. Birth can be simple, powerful and loving. Fetal positioning, natural birthing and practical help for normal birth.
