2016 ImprovingBirth.org Athens, GA Rally August 09 2016
Save the Date : Labor Day 2016
The Improving Birth Athens Georgia Rally is back and we hope it is bigger and better than ever this year!
Join us as we Rally to Improve Birth and maternity care and outcomes! All pregnant and birthing women deserve a high level of evidence-based care, safety for themselves and for babies, and ultimate respect when it comes to making informed choices and consenting to decisions made about their birth.
Maybe you had a great birthing outcome? Maybe you are longing for a different experience? No matter your specific experiences it is very hard to deny the fact: we can do better!
Once birth is over you cannot go back and change the circumstances. So many times women are left feeling remorse or regret or even worse feel they have been victims of bullying and abuse in their moments of most need.
If you are someone who feels they may have had their rights violated or a traumatic birth experience ImprovingBirth.org has resources that you may find helpful
Check out their sections on:
"VBAC & Induction Facts"
"Filling a Complaint"
"Traumatic Birth Toolkit"
