Re: “S.C. natural birth centers could face closure by state regulators

So every birth center should be punished because of the actions of one? I am not discounting the seriousness of the death in Fort Mill, but I'm going to assume MUSC, Roper, and East Cooper wouldn't all be shut down if one of them had the same thing occur. Having a physician physically come to the birth center in an emergency would only delay the patient receiving the IN HOSPITAL care they would require. I would be quite upset if during an emergency the midwife told me "wait, we need the Dr. to check you before we transfer to the hospital". The Charleston Birth Place is the only accredited birth center in the state, and they are trained to identify when a patient needs to go to the hospital.
I recently gave birth to my son at the Charleston Birth Place. The care I received was far superior to that which I received in the hospital setting. This is a woman's rights issue. Women have the right to chose where we give birth. The Charleston Birth Place offers a safe alternative to the hospital setting. Research has proven that birth centers are as safe, if not SAFER, than hospital births. If I don't have this option for my next child, I will be birthing at home. Hopefully, that's not a right you can take away as well.
