The Childbirth Declaration of Independence

The Childbirth Declaration of the Independence
from the Unscientific and Harmful Forms of Maternity Care as Provided to Healthy Childbearing Women in the U.S:

We hold these truths to be self-evident — that every normal healthy woman has the right to preserve the biological and psychological integrity of her person and her unborn baby from all forms of maternity care that fail the test of common sense.

Common Sense Maternity Care is science-based. Common sense maternity care is organized around preserving the health of the already healthy mothers. Common sense maternity care is based on the principle of physiological management, which is in accord with and supportive of the normal biology. Common sense maternity care is careful not to disturb the normal biological process. Common sense maternity care is fundamentally “efficacious” – that is, safe, cost-effective, accessible, affordable, acceptable and mother-baby, father, and family-friendly.

  2. Kathy,

    Thank you bunches for posting this! This should required reading for medical students!

    I don’t know why, but reading this almost drove me to tears. On one hand I’m thanksful this is getting attention but on the other, it saddens me that we have to go to the extent of “birth plans” and declarations such as this to get our voices heard.

    Thank you so much!
