Calling All Bloggers! Announcing the Lamaze Healthy Birth Blog Carnivals
Earlier this month, we announced that Lamaze had released the latest revision of our Health Birth Practice Papers. These are evidence-based statements about the care practices that ease and facilitate labor, prevent complications, and protect breastfeeding and early mother-infant attachment. The response from the blogging community has been wonderful – many bloggers have already begun sharing their thoughts about and personal experiences with these practices.
We decided it’s time to bring those great blog posts together in one place, and motivate other bloggers to share their perspectives as well. Over the next couple of months, Science & Sensibility will host a series of Blog Carnivals – one for each of the Six Healthy Birth Practices. We’ll start with the first, of course: Let labor begin on its own. We’re looking for posts from a broad range of bloggers on any aspect of labor onset. Your contribution can be a personal story, an analysis of a research or media item, exploration of a common myth, advice for pregnant women, you name it. I will compile a list of contributions here at Science & Sensibility, with links to the blogs where each is posted.
Participation is easy:
- If you are a blogger, write a blog post on the Carnival theme (Let labor begin on its own). Post it on your blog by Sunday, October 4. Make sure the post links back to this blog post, to the Healthy Birth Practice Paper, or to the Mother’s Advocate video, Healthy Birth Your Way: Let Labor Begin on its Own. You may also submit a previously written post, as long as the information is still current.
- Send an email with a link to your post to amyromano [at] lamaze dot org.
- If you do not have a blog but would like to participate, you may submit a guest post by emailing it to me.
- I will compile and post the Blog Carnival here at Science & Sensibility the week of October 5.
