ACOG’s Homebirth Statement

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has just released a new statement on homebirth. It can be found here.

There have been many responses to their rather condescending statement, but my all-time favorite can be found here. Rixa at The True Face of Birth has written “10 Responses to ACOG’s Statement on Homebirth” which are excellently presented and referenced as well. I take great pleasure in sharing them because she has said pretty much what I wanted to say after my initial fury and disbelief had subsided.

    Both links go to the ACOG statement, the second doesn’t go to the responses:(
