Mamas on Bedrest: Presenting “Choices in Childbirth”April 22nd, 2011
Choices in Childbirth is a non-profit organization that strives to improve maternity care by helping women make informed decisions about where, how and with whom to birth. Through education, outreach and advocacy, they provide information to the public about women’s rights and options in birth. They also have a database of mother friendly providers. If you are a mother friendly provider or know of an excellent mother friendly provider, visit choicesinchildbirth.org and see how to be listed in the database.
In this podcast, Bedrest Coach Darline Turner-Lee interviews president and childbirth and maternity advocate Elan McAllister. Elan shares with us her journey to becoming a childbirth and maternity advocate and the events that lead to the “birth” of Choices in Childbirth. She also shares what’s up and coming with the organization, including their first major fundraiser “The Concert for a Healthy Birth” on May 9,2011 in New York City.
