So much came from this conference this week, so I wanted to share a ton of links that may be helpful for those who were not able to participate.
If you were not able to watch the coverage, you can use these links for viewing of what took place.
Day One of the National Institute of Health’s VBAC Conference
Day Two of the National Institute of Health’s VBAC Conference
Day Three of the National Institute of Health’s VBAC Conference
All three links are video feeds.
In the aftermath of this conference, there are an incredible amount of articles not only addressing the rising cesarean rates, increasing maternal mortality rates, and lack of VBAC access, but human rights issues that the panel at NIH did not address in their statement.
So, because I have been a media junkie the past couple days, I started tracking all the links.
