Rally to call attention to the healthcare crisis around U.S. maternity care. This Labor Day, our community will stand simultaneously with thousands of people in over 150 cities in all 50 states around the country, in peaceful, family-oriented gatherings, for the 2013 second annual Rally to Improve Birth. Our purpose is to call attention to the dire state of our maternal health care system and to call for evidence-based, humane birth practices.
Labor Day, September 2, 2013
10 a.m. to 12 noon
SR 436 in Altamonte Springs between Essex Ave and Palm Springs Dr in front of Sears at the Altamonte Mall
U.S. maternity care is in a crisis. Our all-time high Cesarean section rate of 1 in 3 births is just one indicator of a system where the care we receive is shaped by many factors other than what is best for moms and babies—where 9 out of 10 women receive care that increases, rather than decreases, the risks of harm to them and their babies (see www.ImprovingBirth.com/the-evidence-shows).
Mothers, fathers, children, healthcare providers, birth professionals, and anyone else who supports better, safer, more respectful maternity care.
We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization of mothers and those who care for us.
Our mission is to bring evidence-based care and humanity to childbirth.
