For the past two years, women and men in Buffalo have rallied to improve birth in the WNY area. In 2012 we rallied outside of Mercy Hospital , and last year we rallied in front of the soon-to-be birth center on Main St. This year's rally is going to be bigger and better than ever!
On Saturday, September 6th, Buffalo, NY along with many other cities across the US and internationally will gather together to rally for Evidence Based Maternity Care for women .
This movement isn’t about natural birth vs. medicated birth. It’s not about hospital birth vs. homebirth or birth center birth.
It’s about women being capable of making safer, more informed decisions about their care and that of their babies, when they are given full and accurate information about their care options, including the potential harms, benefits, and alternatives. It’s about respect for women and their decisions in childbirth, including how, where, and with whom they give birth; and the right to be treated with dignity and compassion.
Please join us and make this year's rally a huge success! We will have pre-made signs for people to use, so no need to bring your own. Also, we're asking everyone to wear either white, blue, or teal; there are some excelent options for white t-shirts at our cafepress shop.
