Rally to Improve Birth slated Monday in Fargo

FARGO – Fargo families will join parents, health care providers and advocates in all 50 states and around the world during the Rally to Improve Birth at 10 a.m. Monday.

Fargo’s rally will be at the corner of 32nd Avenue and 25th Street South. A listing of all rally locations is available at www.rallytoimprovebirth.com.

Supporters will call for safer, evidence-based birth practices that put women and babies before profits, convenience and liability concerns. North Dakota’s C-section rate of 27.7 percent is higher than the 15 percent suggested by the World Health Organization as a highest recommended rate.
