2014 Rally to Improve Birth: Public Outreach
Date(s) - 6 Sep 2014
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Waterford Lakes Town Center
Thousands of men, women and children will gather this September as part of an international movement. Improving Birth’s “Rally to Improve Birth” will host its 3rd annual rally, held simultaneously in dozens of states across the U.S., and in Canada, Mexico, and Australia. It’s important to note that this is not a protest but a public outreach family event. Come Stand with Us on the sidewalk in front of Chick-fil-A and TGI Fridays at Waterford Lakes! We encourage men, women, and children to come stand in support of evidence-based maternity care and the right of women to make their own informed decisions about how to give birth. This movement isn’t about natural birth vs. medicated birth. It’s not about hospital birth vs. homebirth or birth center birth. It’s about women being capable of making safer, more informed decisions about their care and that of their babies, when they are given full and accurate information about their care options, including the potential harms, benefits, and alternatives. It’s about respect for women and their decisions in childbirth, including how, where, and with whom they give birth; and the right to be treated with dignity and compassion.
