Thanks Karen for clarifying some assumptions that had been made. I gave birth at the Birth Center last year, and it was great to have that - say it with me people - OPTION. The Birth Center and the midwives work seamlessly within the UCSD medical practices, and all of my health information from previous obstetrics visits was available and used by the midwives. No one pushed an agenda, and there was a lot of focus on education of the patient and their supporters.I challenge the assumption made by other commenters that "natural birth-ers" judge mothers with other types of births. I commend KPBS for highlighting a little-known program that has enriched the lives of thousands of families. All one has to do is see the photo board behind the nurses' station at the Center to see what it is all about.
