Women Deserve Choices - Ontario needs #birthcentres

Did you know Canada.. we are happy to share this guest post with you from Canadian Blogger Little Miss Kate.

Women deserve choices - Choices for where they give birth

Right now in Ontario women are limited to either having a home or hospital birth.

But what about if you are not comfortable with the idea of giving birth at home, but have a normal health pregnancy so there is no reason to be hospitalized for your birth?  What then?

Well women around the world and in other parts of Canada (including Quebec) have another option:  Birth Centres!



Ontario Needs Birth Centres and it is not just me who thinks so! Check out these 2 videos from Birth Centre Supporters:

Ted Corrado, executive chef at the Royal Ontario Museum



and Mike O'Shea, former CFL linebacker



Why we NEED Birth Centres in Ontario:

*Birth Centres will SAVE Ontario money
*Offer optimized care and support for NORMAL births
*The Safety of Birth Centres has been well established throughout the world and even other provinces in Canada
*Ontario is home to 75 midwifery clinics with highly trained staff who are ready to offer this amazing service to mothers across Ontario
