Scheduled birth, labor induction, ever-increasing cesarean section rate, elective primary c/section…It’s enough to make your head spin.

As you know, if you have been following my blog this year, this is a subject I feel very strongly about. I’ve written about it many times. Yet another, very sad story was on MSNBC a few days ago outlining the risks of giving birth at home. Catherine and Ricardo lost their daughter because labor went on abnormally for days, without medical attention.
