Mothers, fathers, children, healthcare providers, birth professionals and anyone else who supports evidence-based maternity care are invited to rally on Labor Day to call attention to the healthcare crisis surrounding birth in America.
Evidence-based maternity care means providing birth practices shown by the most current medical evidence to be the most beneficial to mothers and babies as individuals, reducing the incidence of injury, complication and death.improvingbirth.org, “one in three babies is born by surgery, nine out of 10 women do not receive care based on best medical evidence and a woman’s chance of dying in childbirth is higher here than in 48 other developed countries.”
