SOGC Understands

In celebration of the International Day of the Midwife on May 4th, 2011, the Society of Obstetrics & Gynecology of Canada (SOGC) has put out a news release calling for more collaborative care for pregnant women. The president of SOGC has this to say:

“The SOGC acknowledges that it is the mother’s decision to decide where she would like to give birth,” stated Dr. André Lalonde, executive vice-president of the SOGC. “Most babies are born without serious complications. As ob/gyns, our specialized training allows us to address the unique requirements of high-risk situations. What matters is that all professions acknowledge each other’s competencies and work together to provide mother and baby with the quality care they need, when they need it, where they want it.”
