WELCOMING BABY TO EUGENE: Varieties of Birthing Experiences
Prospective parents have a wide range of primary and secondary support services available to help with the arrival of a new baby. But policies of the providers and of the insurers significantly impact parents' choices beyond the assessment of resources and risks that directly affect maternal and child health. In addition, there are public perceptions and biases that limit availability, beliefs that are not supported by data on maternal or child health. Four professionals discuss child bearing options and how labor and delivery are affected by both medical and non medical considerations. This clip features Colleen Forbes, a Certified Professional Midwife and an Oregon Licensed Direct-entry Midwife. She has been attending homebirths in the Eugene area since 1998 and has been Certified and Licensed since 2002. She is introduced by City Club president Mary Leighton. Recorded on Oct 21, 2011 at the City Club of Eugene.
