Hospitals Embrace Midwifery

The medical process of giving birth has really changed. 

Some people alive today were born in sterile (in every sense) hospital rooms while their mothers were asleep. 

The natural childbirth movement rejected that approach, and now even the hospitals provide the alternatives. 

Case in point: the midwifery services available through Asante Health System at Ashland Community Hospital.  Physician Hillary Seger and Certified Nurse Midwife Loretta Sandoval talk about what's involved in midwifery.
