Fear should not stop local birthing center
I am overjoyed for the proposed birth center in Elizabethtown but dismayed to hear about the fear that might prevent its opening.
The Birth Center Study (Rooks, 1992), a study involving more than 18,000 women, showed the safety of birth center birth equal to that of hospital birth. ACOG, the governing body for obstetricians and gynecologists, statement is, “the Committee on Obstetric Practice believes that hospitals and birthing centers are the safest setting for birth.”
