childbirthing center

I also blog for JAMA News Forum on policy matters, along with some other folks. My latest post deals with transforming maternity services in the U.S.  I’m hoping that it is fodder for conversations and actions to give women more birthing choices and improve maternal, child, and financial outcomes at the same time. Check it out:  http://jama.md/13ZTN9M  JAMA doesn’t let others post comments, so I’d welcome people’s thoughts on this HealthCetera post regarding how to move forward with this transformation.
