Two great posts this week highlight the not-so-random aspects of medicalized childbirth in the U.S. The Feminist Breeder shares Why I Won’t Leave My Birth Up to Chance and Birth Sense reflects on Cookie-cutter obstetrics.
In addition, a couple of posts this week discussed conditions that are often fodder for unnecessary cesareans. Stand and Deliver contemplates Confidence, competence and preserving breech birth at home, while Mumatopia outlines the issues related to post-dates pregnancy.
