To say that we support the right to a safe, healthy birth is a bit of an understatement. You need only to attend one of our Pathways Connect meetings or check out our blog to see that supporting pregnant women, their families and their right to an intervention free birth is exactly what we, as a prenatal chiropractic practice, are about. We’ve rallied for Southwest Florida events in the past, from marching against GMOs to protecting Florida’s waterways – but this event in particular hits home for us. On September 1st there is a rally happening in Southwest Florida in support of the Improving Birth cause.
Who is Improving Birth?
Improving Birth is a national nonprofit organization whose goal is to bring evidence-based care and humanity to childbirth. By raising awareness in the current statistics surrounding the care of pregnant women in the United States, the rallies seek to help pregnant women make informed decisions with supportive providers with regard to the birth of their child.
Why is this rally important?
Over the years, there has been a change in the way that birth is perceived. Rather than a natural process that empowers a woman, birth has gradually been turned into a medical process supported by intervention and governed by convenience. By joining us for this rally, you support a woman’s right to an informed choice regarding the birth that she wants without pressure, bullying or worry.
