AMA Slams Ricki Lake's Home Birthing Film, Seeks Resolution

The American Medical Association would like you to know that the best place to have your baby is in the hospital. In fact, according to a new resolution, if you do indeed decide to take such drastic action as a natural birth outside a hospital, you will put yourself at risk to “maternal hemorrhage, shoulder dystocia, eclampsia or other obstetric emergencies.”

This has nothing to do with money, right? 

The AMA is none too pleased that talk show host Rick Lake’s documentary, The Business of Being Born, has been receiving great publicity and acclaim from media outlets. The film asks the question “Should most births be viewed as a natural life process, or should every delivery be treated as a potentially catastrophic medical emergency?” and apparently the AMA is answering with a “no” and “yes”.  

They’ve recently issued a mandate that would declare the hospital the “safest setting” for birth. Nothing like taking away choices from people — or scaring the hell out of them into going your way. Thanks, AMA!
