I woke up to this article from Brio Birth this morning. It’s a smart, concise piece on informed choice and how we can bring it to bear on our pregnancies, labours and births. The prenatal series I’m teaching (starting tonight!) at the Centre for Social Innovation will help my students make choices based on clear understandings of both risks and benefits. Sometimes doctors make good suggestions, sometimes they make bad ones and sometimes, what might be a good suggestion for one person might not be right for another. Individualized care means way more than just “getting consent”.
