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

Both of my children were birth center babies (at Women's Birth and Wellness Center in Chapel Hill, NC). As a mom and as a birth doula, I strongly support free-standing birth centers and the midwives who staff them. Not only is it important to give women choices in their birth setting and care providers, but it is also important to support a model of care that obviously works. For low-risk women, a birth center birth attended by a CNM is one of her safest options. The statistics coming out of birth centers nationwide are all telling the same story: low Cesarean rates, low transfer rates, extremely low emergency transfer rates, and better outcomes for both mom and baby, even when compared to similarly low-risk women in the hospital setting. More bureaucratic involvement by individuals NOT trained in maternal health means less choice for moms and worse outcomes for moms and babies!
