Full Disclosure

In an effort to keep Iowa Birth Activists as transparent as possible I wanted to share with you all that I have been asked to serve of the board for Improving Birth.  This is an extremely flattering and exciting opportunity for me and, as such, I have accepted.  Improving Birth is up to some big exciting stuff and I'm thrilled to be asked to join them for the next year!

Improving Birth is the organization who coordinated a national rally on Labor Day last year and IBA hosted the one and only Iowa location.  Improving Birth provided amazing resources, which enabled us to be able to host our  rally.  As many of you know that rally was also IBA's kick-off party, so we're grateful   The rallies across the country were a great success and drew lots of attention (at a national level) to birth issues.  Needless to say, I'm a fan of what they're doing.

So, why am I posting this?  No, it's not to brag - really.  I'm sharing this with you to 1) encourage you, my Iowa Birth Activist allies, to host a rally in your community this year and 2) invite someone else (or several someone's) to step up and host the Central Iowa rally.  Certainly, I will do and I am willing, but this is a great way for anyone to come out and play!
