The end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 spark excitement in the birth world! Two separate organizations honor two women who daily, stand up for physiologic birth and women/baby centered maternity care: Ina May Gaskin and Robin Lim.
For those of you who may not have seen Ina May Gaskin receive the Rightlivlihood Award earlier, here is the video.
And if you missed Robin Lim receiving her award at the CNN 2011 Hero(es) of the Year Ceremony, the link to that segment is not available for embedding at this time but is available by clicking here.
These awards and videos are important to share on any and every social media. Expectant parents are constantly being bombarded by information about alternative means of giving birth and raising a baby. We must, as birth professionals, share in the duty and honor of dispelling myths and sharing the truth.
