Best of the Birth Blogs – Week Ending December 6th

Your weekly one-stop for highlights from the birth blogosphere. Visit weekly for the latest on childbirth, especially related to cesarean prevention, recovery, and VBAC. To nominate a blog post to be featured here, email me at

Patti Ramos – Detached: Perhaps the most heart-wrenching and amazing photo of the cesarean experience I’ve seen to-date.

Science & Sensibility – What SUVs Can Teach Us About Maternity Care: An excerpt from Henci Goer and Amy Romano’s forthcoming second edition of Obstetric Myths versus Research Realities. The blog title pretty much captures it.

Birth Sense – “You’ll Never Be Able to Give Birth Vaginally”: An inspiring VBAC story of overcoming one OB’s negative (and wrong) prediction.

Reality Rounds - Sunday Funnies: A Birth Blogger Rap: Last, but not least, for those who enjoy a good row with The-Doctor-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named this is a must-read, as is the comment section on Jill’s post at the Unnecessarian that inspired it.
