The problem with birth care is the same in many other aspects of society, from food, health care in general and technology: the well being of people – in special women and their babies – is secondary to power and monetaty gains that this current model offers to the ones in command. So, to solve the problems in childbirth it is not enough to have the good ideas and the proper answers…. we need to have the power to take action. And power is never given; it is always something that we conquer.
