Linky goodness: to VBAC or not to VBAC, birth videos, and more!

Time to clear out the starred posts in my blog reader! Sorry, some of them are a few weeks old but of course, still great:

Robin Marty of RH Reality Check on the many reasons she's choosing an elective repeat c-section over a VBAC attempt.

Birth Sense introduces you to the handsome, charming Dr. Justin Case.

Video of baby born in the caul, via Homebirth: A Midwife Mutiny.

Video of frank breech home birth via Gloria Lemay.

Dou-la-la channels Don Draper in explaining why those nice formula companies are so darned excited about breastfeeding.

Why African Babies Don't Cry, via Blacktating.

Mom's Tinfoil Hat linked to a post on abortion and parental notification laws that, very sadly, is no longer up (the author decided to make posts about her work private - I struggle with walking the same line, and totally understand). However, you can still read an excerpt and a long comment from the author in MomTFH's post.

Not birth-related, but something that really touched me to see today: Dan Savage's It Gets Better Project: a collection of videos of adults telling gay teenagers that high school ends and their lives will improve. Read an interview with Dan Savage here, including the reason he decided to start this project.
