The Campaign to Save the North Shore Birth Center

Archive for November 12th, 2008

The MOMformation blog at BabyCenter has picked up our story!

A spokesperson from the birth center stated that “As with other birth centers around the nation, North Shore Birth Center is experiencing a significant rise in the cost of malpractice insurance premiums.” It appears that this is what’s driving the discussions of possible closure.

How important is it to you that facilities like the North Shore Birth Center are available to women? Is this a cause that you would support – if not in-person, than via the social networking tools that are available to us now?

Drop by BabyCenter, read the post, comment on it, and let jamie lee know that we appreciate her sharing our story!

At this morning’s picket, just before security very politely asked us to move to Herrick Street at Beverly Hospital’s main entrance entrance, a reporter from the Beverly Citizen took the picketer’s photos and info. Hopefully we’ll see some smiling faces and birth-positive signs in the next issue.

Picketing makes for a great photo/film op, so get in touch with your local paper or news network (if you haven’t already) and let them know when you, a resident with an important opinion about the community, will be outside with a sign!
