Connections: Reducing the Rate of C-Sections

Mar 18, 2014

We examined a new report from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists that calls for a reduction in the rate of C-section births. One method they recommend is bringing more doulas into delivery rooms. What’s a doula?

We heard from Kim Guck, a local doula, along with a client of hers. And we heard from Dr. Marcy Mulconry, an OB-GYN at Highland Hospital, along with Helene Thompson-Scott, a midwife with the University Midwifery Group.
