Another Birth Rally On The Books!
Jessie Uchytil, of Crowning Achievements Birth Services, has led us mothers in another Birth Rally. While 2018 does bring better awareness about the rights that mothers deserve while in the process of labor, mortality rates continue to rise in the United States. More so than other countries even. Jessie is still passionately fighting for our rights to be respected as patients, and humans.
We were honored by the presence of many supporters. From midwives Barbara Purnell and Samantha Brinkerhoff, of Wabash Valley Midwives;
Lactation expert Rachel Spencer, currently serving at Union Hospital;
Katrina King, from Borrowed Hearts Region 8;
and no forgetting Tamara Black with Usborn Books.
It was especially pleasing to see our local news journalist join us to gather information. The more moms we reach, the more we can empower each other. We have known for years that the healthier the mom as a person, the healthier they can be as a mother to her children. Sometimes, in the heat of labor, this is forgotten. That mom IS a person. Not just a vessel for the coming baby, but she is actively a dual patient in the situation.
Thank you Tribune Star.
Thank you WTWO.
Thank you WTHI.
And thank you local mothers who continue to rally together for the betterment of mothers, and ultimately for us all!
