It’s thrilling to have my blog be recognized. Here’s what they are saying at the International Cesarean Awareness Network (ICAN) website:

Gloria Lemay – Eating During the Birth Process: Many in the blogosphere commented this week on ACOG’s new recommendation stating that women should now be allowed to drink clear liquids during labor. Gloria discusses eating during labor, including her own experiences in labor and as a birth attendant. Bottom line, says Gloria: “I pity the powers that be at ACOG that they think they can make protocols, rules, and guidelines that will cover all births. A better goal would be to have clinicians who could think for themselves, distinguish complications from a normal birth, relax when things are taking a while, and really observe the consistently fascinating process of human birth.”
I was also selected by ICAN on Aug. 16, 2009 for my post:
“A Proven Method for Reducing the Cesarean Rate”: Gloria reviews a successful, but sadly abandoned, effort to reduce the cesarean rate at a British Columbia Hospital.
So, there’s my brag for the day. Thanks for the acknowledgement, beautiful goddesses at I.C.A.N., it means a lot to me.
