Laura Shanley, of Bornfree/unassisted birth movement is looking to bring attention to the creation of premature babies via unnecessary early cesareans and she would like women to help...read on:
I am looking for women nationwide who can participate in media interviews to promote a new educational campaign from The March of Dimes and United Healthcare aimed at informing women and physicians about the risks associated with C-sections before 39 weeks of gestation. I am looking for: 1. Women who are currently pregnant and feel strongly about carrying the baby the full term (more than 39 weeks) and not having a C-section, unless the procedure is medically indicated; 2. Women who have previously had a C-section before 39 weeks gestation and felt the procedure was unnecessary or had the baby end up in the NICU.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org < mailto:email@example.com > and I will connect you with my son, Will Shanley, who is the west coast director of public relations for United Healthcare. Will is reaching out to print journalists across the nation and encouraging them to write news stories about the new March of Dimes campaign and the risks associated with early C-section.
Thanks in advance for your help in telling this important story!
Much love, Laura
