A Big Birth Boomerang is Coming Our Way

Get ready North American birthies because this Sunday you’ll be seeing the Mother of all Rallies coming to you from Australia.  The government of Australia has had the temerity to threaten home birth choices and Australian families and midwifery supporters are coming out to the Parliament House in Canberra with a show of force that will wake up the world. 

The rally will be Monday in Australia but the corresponding times in North America are:

Pacific Daylight: 6:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6/09

Mountain Daylight: 7:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6/09

Central Daylight: 8:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6/09

Eastern Daylight: 9:00 p.m. Sunday, Sept 6/09

Greenwich Mean Time: 1:00 a.m., Monday Sept 7, 2009

Please light a candle or otherwise hold vigil for this historic event.  If you want to get more information visit the Australian alternative birth website:  www.joyousbirth.info

What’s at issue:  A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE WHERE, WHEN AND WITH WHOM SHE WILL GIVE BIRTH.

  2. Thank-you Gloria, just as I felt connected to all the birthing women who had gone before me during labour, I will feel connected to birth activists all over the world come Monday morning 🙂 And will try very hard to twitter it for you 😉
