I wanted to take a moment to welcome in Pregnancy Awareness Month by sharing with you the article I wrote which appeared in The Daily Yonder last week. I am very excited about the response it has generated. There has been some lively conversation and it was highlighted on www.kentucky.com. The article is called Closing Maternity Wards: Costly and Risky. Click on the picture below to read the article.
It only takes a quick Google search for rural options in maternity care to see that this issue is not very transparent. As we move through Pregnancy Awareness Month, I hope to highlight some of the issues that rural mothers face when expecting a new addition to the family.
