Recent News Articles

I've found and read these recent news articles that have interesting implications for women who are mothers:

VBACS:
This piece in TIME magazine is getting a lot of coverage: The Trouble with Repeat Cesareans
A follow-up story to the TIME article: Childbirth Without Choice

Breastfeeding:
Breastfeeding Benefits Moms with MS
Baby Food: If breast is best, why are women bottling their milk? : article from the New Yorker offering a stunning history of expressed milk
