Steven Jennings runs Bellevue Hospital's birthing center and is one of its 13 midwives, which some people, including a lot of other midwives, find a little freaky [even if the know they shouldn't]. They seem to get over it, though.
Caesarean birth rate for other NYC hospitals can approach 30%. At Bellevue, it's 21%, and at the birthing center, it's 3%.
Do I need to mention that, besides Jennings, no fathers were harmed--or even considered--in the production of this article?
