WCCO-TV featured the home birth experience of one local family on their 10pm newscast last night. Their coverage was overwhelmingly positive. Unfortunately, they did give the last word to the head of obstetrics at Abbott Northwestern, the hospital with the highest cesarean rate in the Twin Cities (35.9% in 2007, according to the Minnesota Department of Health data). Nonetheless, this was certainly good press for normal birth. Kudos to Liz Collins and WCCO!
