What is the Rally for Birth?
Thousands of men, women and children will gather again in the days surrounding Labor Day, (check the map for location and time near you), as part of an international movement. Improving Birth’s “Rally to Improve Birth” will host its 5th annual rally, held simultaneously in locations all across the U.S., and in Canada, Mexico, and Australia.
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.
