a return to supporting natural childbirth.
I have been a labor and deliver nurse for 22 years. Over that period of time I have witnessed a transformation in the way women are cared for by the medical community. There seems to be an attitude that women need to be "cured" of their pregnancies. Why? From my experience all that does is to increase interventions such as cesarean sections, epidurals, and inductions. It has put a strain on the health care system and has not improved outcomes.
