Bring #BirthCentres to Ontario and Help Save $$$

By Bewilderedbug @bewilderedbug

Please welcome my newest guest poster, my good friend, an amazing Mommy and amazing Canadian blogger, Little Miss Kate

Budget cuts are in the news every day now.  In Canada we value our health care system greatly, but the reality is that we spend the majority of our budget on health care costs.

With all the talk about saving money it is time to come up with innovative ways to decrease our health spending.  One way to do that – Bring Birth Centres to Ontario!

Ontario Needs Birth Centres as they will save us money:

  • Births carried out by midwives (in a hospital) cost the health system less than those by a doctor, the savings is far greater
  • Midwives support safe & normal birth leading to a reduction in the number of interventions
  • The c-section rate of women are under the care of midwives is less than half of the provincial average for doctors
  • Birth Centres will free up hospital resources to deal with the more complex cases

Want to learn more visit the Ontario Midwives website or check out  the Ontario Needs Birth Centres Brochure

What can YOU do?  Take action NOW!

Send an e-postcard to let Premier Dalton McGuinty to let him know you support birth centres

On Twitter? Why not send out a tweet showing your support, for example:
