Here’s a preliminary statement from the HBCS Steering Committee:
This national summit of stakeholders and leaders met October 20-22, 2011 in Warrenton, VA to discuss the status of homebirth within the greater context of US Maternity care. The dialogue was held in good faith, was respectful, complex, and revealed multiple issues for future discussion and action. Common ground was discovered across several areas of concern about maternity care in the United States. Statements reflecting shared commitments by delegates will be posted by November 1, 2011.
So, much more to come next week.
