The informed consent binder is a book we loan to our first time Moms and first time home birthers. Sarah and I have had several discussions on the best way to achieve informed consent. We believe that along with informed consent it is important to respect informed refusal. Birth is such a huge topic that it is almost impossible to explain every choice a woman has in her care. The Informed Consent Binder was Sarah's brain child. She joined the Evidence Care in Birth site and obtained permission to use the material there. We keep adding to it as new topics and information from other sources becomes available. It will be a work in progress and will never be finished because to be evidence based you need to be open minded to the new information that is constantly available. We don't throw out the old but build on it so that Mothers and families will have the best research available to base their decisions on.
Stay tuned !!
