As we kick off another year of advocating for midwifery, what blogs will you visit (between Midwife Connection posts, of course) to stay informed and inspired? Here are a few of my recommendations. Make a comment to add yours to the list.
Science & Sensibility: Hosted by Lamaze International, this blog discusses research related to pregnancy and birth. Right now, an interesting discussion is brewing about what data should be considered at the upcoming NIH Consensus Development Conference on VBAC.
RH Reality Check: In addition to regular posts on contraception, maternal health, and more, this blog features reader diaries. This is a wonderful site to start a conversation about the issues that matter to you.
Our Bodies, Our Blog: Count on lively coverage of the latest women’s health news at this blog hosted by Our Bodies Ourselves. Check out their recent post on Depo Provera and bone loss.
Birth Sense: This self-described “midwife next door” shares her stories, offers ideas, and supports her readers with common-sense wisdom to help them improve their childbirth experience. In her latest posts, she shares her most memorable births.
