I really appreciate KPBS paying attention to this Human Rights Issue. Thank you, KPBS, for your coverage. After 4 years in San Diego as a Labor/ Birth Doula, I have seen a tremendous difference in the humanizing care a woman and her family receive with midwives rather than in the standard medical model. Midwives believe in women. As the doctor in the piece suggests, many many doctors (yes, here, today, in San Diego) fear the woman and her body and trust the machines and the medicine, citing women's age, obesity, and other failures rather than feeling empowered to help all kinds of women have babies naturally and thus more safely.
