I support birthing centers and a mother's right to choose to birth without an OB present.
Women should be allowed to choose their care provider and location of birth, and those care provider and locations should be legally allowed to provide services. Making a woman wait for a physician to show up at a birth center before she transfers would only cause delays in care in care. A physician is not allowed to do anything more than a midwife at a birth center, so if a physician is needed, they should meet the woman at a hospital, where more options are available.
I believe midwives as a whole are doing an excellent job of caring for mama babies in SC! Birth centers should be allowed to continue operating as they have!
