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!
