Here are some great tips on returning to work after maternity leave. What did you find to be the most helpful in transitioning back to work?

Be part of the solution, not the problem. Focus on your passion. Be a leader. Be strong in your convictions when others want you to be weak. Never give up. Remember you are beautiful and you only need to be the best you. Show what you are made of and inspire all those around you. And smile. -January (borrowed from Birth Without Fear)

Happy July 4th to all our wonderful friends and supporters! Anyone out there born on the 4th, had a baby on the 4th, or even maybe feeling like they might have a baby today?

"Providing better prenatal care through the health department and getting pregnant women to meet with peers is paying off with healthier births in south Georgia..."

If you like satire and silly jokes about birth, you will laugh out loud at this one!

"(...)in Georgia, midwives deliver about 18% of all vaginal births" (12% is the national average :) )

"Dr. George Macones, an obstetrician at Washington University in St. Louis and chair of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ committee on obstetric practice, singled out birthing centers as an option that more pregnant women should be able to access ...(they) can provide a more peaceful delivery while still offering expert medical care should an emergency arise".

"So why is it that, over a decade later, when the evidence still supports a low-interventionist type of pregnancy and birth management for low-risk cases, we've made virtually no inroads to making birth more scientific in the United States."

This weekend is the international babywearing conference. Are any of you going? How many of you guys are babywearers? If you do wear your baby, do you like Ring Slings, Soft Structured Carriers, Woven wraps, or some other kind of carrier?

Story
Tagline
Our community needs a family-centric, holistic-minded sanctuary for birthing and primary care.
Introduction
One hundred U.S. cities have a birth center, yet Georgia only has one, which is located in Savannah. The midwives of Intown Midwifery, Margaret Strickhouser and Anjli Aurora Hinman, along with Dr. Brad Bootstaylor, perinatologist and founder of See Baby, have formed a partnership to create Atlanta Birth Center.

Atlanta Birth Center will offer primary care, well woman gynecology, as well as care during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. We will serve our patients utilizing the very best, evidence-based models of wellness care. Our program of care will be designed to build self-confidence in a woman's ability to give birth and will balance the human touch with the best of technology.

In December 2010 Atlanta Birth Center held its first Community Meeting, which was attended by over 250 supporters. Now a large and growing team of volunteers includes many highly qualified professionals with a variety of expertise on law, project management, architecture, social media, public relations, finance, leadership, and health care.

To join this amazing team or to learn more about Atlanta Birth Center, please visit www.AtlantaBirthCenter.org and attend one of our Meet 'n Greets being held around Metro Atlanta:www.AtlantaBirthCenter.org/events
