What I find ridiculous is that ACOG is essentially a trade organization!!!! Why are the docs (and birth community in general) allowing what ACOG says to determine anything?
After all, according to ACOG, homebirth is a dangerous, risky thing.
I'm not trying to put down the OP's question....I think it is very valuable and interesting to see what exactly ACOG is telling it's docs. I also agree that they should be more transparent.....but this is ACOG we are talking about, one of the oldest 'old boys' clubs there are in the USA.
