The costs of institutional births
I would like to share this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eZJqMhxD00 The Costs of Institutional Births: a wake-up call for obstetricians, presented by Dr Amali Lokugamage at the recent RCOG conference in India.
It's an excellent summary of the (growing) body of knowledge around birth place, the physiology of birth, birth ecology, sociology, economics, continuity of midwifery care, ... and quotes some of the great Australian research on these matters.
Please take a moment to watch the presentation, and share it with others who are committed to improving maternity care for mothers and babies.
