Welcome to the Birth Issues Blog.
As the conference coordinator for the Controversies in Childbirth Conference, (www.birthconference.org) this blog will give you behind the scenes views of what is going on with the conference, why the conference exists, what the issues are, how the media reports the issues and how each side spins the issues and the media reports.. This conference is neutral territory, which means that conference management does not have an agenda to show that any one side is better, but rather tries to allow all relevant sides to be presented professionally with clarity,. This blog hopes to do the same. This blog will also look at health care reform and will try to ask questions that the media is not asking. Also, we asking questions the media does not know how to ask or refuses to ask on birth issues. The date for the Controversies in Childbirth Conference is February 19-21, 2010, at the Westin Harbour Island hotel in Tampa Florida. We hope you can join us. Alan
