Speaking out – again

Many many moons after my early brush with The West, I once again was contacted, through channels that are hard to be clear about (probably old online references to Reclaiming Voices) to contribute to a GP magazine.

Hold on a minute, GPs.  I run a not for profit that supports women’s choices, including homebirth.  Not perhaps a sympathetic audience.  I can also be ambivalent about disclosure in the health sphere, as there can be a different kind of response from that in the community.  Sometimes, dare I say, a bit of opporbrium and judgement can creep in.

But what the hell, I did it anyway.  An opportunity to raise awareness of the issue.  Here it is, the GP Medical Forum Article.
