I want to invite everyone to check out my blog, Your Thoughts... Development, Children, and Life...

http://mommytymeswordsofwisdom.blogspot.com

This week I have discussed infant mortality, birthing options, etc. I would really love to hear more from those with experience, opinions, ideas... and really tough questions like- How does Universal health Care intend to make a difference with this?

Here is a blurb and I look forward to hearing your comments on the subject...

It is important to note that in all cases, there is a risk of complication during the delivery. However, even in hospital setting with a physician standing by, some of these complications cannot be corrected. Once the birth is complete, the risks for the newborn do not end. In fact, depending upon culture, socioeconomic standards, and available support systems, the risk may increase.

Unfortunately the greatest risk for infant mortality occurs with poor ethnic minorities (Gross, 2008). African American and Native American infants are twice as likely to die in the first year, while Canada has the greatest survival rate (Gross, 2008). The infant mortality is linked to physical defects and low birth weight (Gross, 2008). The numbers are actually staggering for the first month of life, with 67% of infant deaths in the United States (Gross, 2008).
