Laura,
This is a great article. I'm amazed at how many sections are done these days. Granted, there are times when it's necessary, but the "failure to progress" c-sections seem to be very common practice. It's a shame.

I think it can be a shame in a normal pregnancy.... but I think that reading that article here you need to take it with a grain of salt, because obviously they're not talking about it within the context of severe disease.

Oh yeah, I agree. When things are "complicated" it's a whole new ball game.

Interesting...definetly not talking about it within it the context of serious disease. Also, the Zuni-Ramah Hospital mentioned is about 30 miles away.
