WGNO's Anne Cutler interviewed me for a piece on homebirth in Louisiana, pointing out that the number of women choosing to give birth at home is increasing locally and nationally. By showing pieces like this one, local media can help women realize that surgeon-attended hospital birth is not the only option. It was a great experience, and I hope local news continues to show the positive and safe aspects of midwifery care!
