Provide Evidence Based Care

In the United States of America, we face a crisis. Women are going into birth trusting their doctors, and coming out confused. The United States ranks 34th in infant mortality, and we have a 34% cesarean rate. These rates spike on weekends and holidays, and many women have reported being asked to schedule babies around their vacations. We need to stand together and let healthcare professionals know that we are holding them accountable for every induction, every cesarean. We need them to provide EVIDENCE for the necessity of every intervention. There are options, and our healthcare professionals should be held accountable for informing us of them. Require healthcare professionals to commit to integrity in providing evidence based care to their clients.
