Rookie Mommy Ramblings Supports: The National Rally for Change
A Full Scale Birth Revolution on Labor Day
September 3, 2012 10am – 12noon | Bayfront Park Miami
A massive uprising is on the horizon. Thousands of men, women and children will gather on September 3rd, 2012 as part of a national movement. Improving Birth’s “National Rally for Change on Labor Day” is being hosted in close to 100 major cities, in all 50 states across the country. Thanks to the intricate works of social media, ImprovingBirth.org has been able to organize a massive movement to bring awareness to the lack of evidence-based maternity care in the US. One writer coined it as “The largest women’s movement in decades.”
Take Action! – We need women, men and children to come stand in support of evidence-based maternity care for everyone on September 3, 2012. The Rally will be held in locations all over the country as the launch to Empowered Birth Awareness Week.
The National Rally for Change is to encourage and insist that all maternal healthcare providers practice evidence-based care. On average it takes 20 years for proven research to become practice. For the sake of mothers and babies everywhere, we can’t wait 20 years. The long-term effects of unnecessary inductions and cesareans are just starting to be realized. This matters for all people. Despite the dire situation, this is not a protest, but a public outreach event located where the vast majority of the population gives birth.
As the title of my blog suggests, Rookie Mommy Ramblings is just that. As a first time mom to a precocious toddler who also juggles a full-time role as a hard-working communications professional, sometimes I just need to ramble! At the same time, I know I'm not alone. I hope you can relate to my posts and also find worthy information on South Florida events for cool parents like you! Follow me here:
