Makes Me Freaking Sick!!

The ACOG is trying to make home birth out to be more dangerous than it really is, so it has called everyone to fill out a survey if they have witnessed or had a ‘bad home birth’.

So, instead, flood them with good home birth stories!!

We need to show them that home births are amazing and women should have the choice to have them. They want to make them completely illegal, and that completely cuts out a woman’s choice for the place she wants to birth.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is concerned that recent increases in elective home delivery will result in an increased complication and morbidity rate. Recent reports to the office indicate our members are being called in to handle these emergencies and in some instances have been named in legal proceedings. To attempt to determine the extent of the problem, a registry of these cases will be maintained at ACOG on a year-by-year basis.

If you have been called to attend, whether in the emergency room, operating room or labor and delivery suite, a patient who came to your hospital after an unsuccessful attempt at elective home delivery, please complete the following survey even if there was no adverse outcome. Include only current events after June 15, 2009.

Fill out the survey HERE
