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.
