#52 Our Facebook Live Discussing the Boston Globe Article About Separating Birthing Families

Recording of a Facebook Live we did on the Babies in Common Facebook page on Wednesday, February 17, 2021, discussing the Boston Globe article (front page!) highlighting our petition to stop certain hospitals in Massachusetts from separating birthing families for hours, days and sometimes weeks before they give birth.  In this video we also talk about what people can do to advocate for themselves and others and what to do if you are laboring alone or find out that your birthplace isn't going to welcome your labor support person in with you.
