Overview
Every year, tens of thousands of American women give birth at home or in birth centers with a direct-entry midwife. Most of them believe that this practice is "at least as safe" as giving birth in a hospital, and midwives often say that studies have proven this to be true. But what does the evidence actually show? Join former Certified Professional Midwife Leigh Fransen as she uncovers the truth in this compelling report. Fransen graduated from a well-known midwifery school in Florida and co-founded a successful South Carolina birth center, but found herself battling increasing concern regarding direct-entry midwifery and nonhospital birth. After three local babies died at birth, some hard questions had to be answered. Don't miss the details that every parent-to-be and concerned citizen must hear.
