Well, regarding the post below, there are at least 25 people who agree with me about the inexcusable care that laboring women are given in U.S. hospitals today. Read the 25 reviews (including reviews from an OB and an LDR nurse) of the book PUSHED by Jennifer Block on Amazon.com. and become a believer.

Darlene - Thanks for the recommendation of the book. I am very excited to read it. I would love to hear other book recommendations for natural childbirth. I think I need to educate myself on home birth much more then I have. In fact, you have inspired me to email a midwife I know to organize attending some home births with her! I do think Canada may have it better than the US in some ways, but our C-section rate is equally as appalling and no obstetricians are quick to answer to resounding WHY question (other than the maternal age, etc. answers).

Just wanted to say that we have a lot to learn up in Canada and think that sometimes we're quick to dismiss books like PUSHED because we think it's an american problem. I'll keep you posted! Sounds like an interesting and informative read.
