Your Call 051409 What do you need for your best birth?

On the next Your Call we talk about giving birth -- at home, in a hospital, wherever works best for you -- and the systems in place to help your family plan the birth you want, where you want. What social supports do women and their partners need to make informed decisions about how to bring their babies into the world? How can doctors and midwives come together to transform the way of American birth? We'll be joined by Abby Apstein, co-author of Your Best Birth, and local mid-wife Maria Lorillo. Send us an email at or call 866-798-TALK, that's 866-798-8255, and join us live at 11 am. What do you need for your best birth? It's Your Call with Ben Temchine and you.

Abby Epstein, director of the film The Business of Being Born and co-author of Your Best Birth
