Here is some interesting food for thought! Are your summer babies happier?

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.

"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".
