A couple weeks ago I wrote a post on why we chose to use a midwife for our firstborn. One of the reasons I highlighted was the astronomically high maternal death rate in the U.S (it is double that of Canada and Western Europe). Since hitting publish on that post, I came across this infographic from Amnesty International—who is spearheading this cause—and wanted to share it with you.
Please help spread the word. Our mothers deserve better, and our children need their mom’s. All comments and discussion welcome, add to the conversation below.
