We've previously mentioned some of the many great resources offered by Childbirth Connection and we'd like you to call attention to another one of them--Evidence Columns. This e-news summary is issued once every two months and is an excellent way to keep up with the latest research about maternity care and childbirth.
In the January/February 2008 issue there is an interesting graph visually contrasting the rising cesarean rate with the dropping VBAC rate and another interesting chart about costs of birth by setting (unfortunately it does not include home births). Birth activists can easily access both of the charts to print out as free pdf handouts after registering and logging in.
To sign up to receive the newsletter you may register (free) by signing up on the Childbirth Connection registration page. Registration is required to download pdfs.
