CBC new and abuse of birthing women

CBC new in Canada has recently done a couple of articles about the abuse of birthing women in Canada. I have to say, either Jennifer Blake, CEO of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada is completely oblivious, or she’s lying her ass off. Either way, she’s part of the problem and needs a serious re-education.

The first article is a general discussion of mistreatment during birth. You’ll note that the hospitals have only gotten 700+ complaints, while the Association for Safe Alternatives in Childbirth has heard thousands. Gee, I wonder if maybe women don’t feel safe complaining to the same people who abused them or believe that it won’t make any difference anyway?

The second article is the stories of women who were abused in birth.
