Make Jackson South Mother Friendly

The women and families of South Florida want leadership in the hospital in support of family-friendly, women-friendly, minimal intervention, midwifery model care.   The ten steps of the Mother Friendly Childbirth Initiative, as outlined by the Coalition for Improving Maternity Services (CIMS,, promote a wellness model of maternity care that will improve birth outcomes and substantially reduce costs. This evidence-based, mother-, baby-, and family-friendly model focuses on prevention and wellness as the alternatives to high-cost screening, diagnosis, and treatment programs. BirthGirlz, Inc. presents this petition on behalf of the women, mothers and families who have expressed broad based support and consumer demand for this initiative. We look forward to forming a partnership with Jackson South Community Hospital to establish the first designated mother-friendly hospital in South Florida.

    3 years ago Comments: this isnt fair if it was signed off by a dr we should have every right to have a vbac at a birthingcenter. as of right now the only hospital that will allow this is tampa general so i will be forced to have a home birth becasue i dont want another c-section and my dr will not do vbac's. I say let us decide what we want to do with our bodies if we want to have our baby in a birthing center and doi vbac nothing should stop me. this is america right??

    3 years ago Comments: I am very glad to know about the concept of motherfriendly. Since, we have also formulated some policies based on CIMS criteria and as our hospital is specialized on mother and child health, we are trying to develop the hospital as a motherfriendly hospital. Hope, in coming days we can upgrade the health status of mother and children.
