Abstract:Thus, I regard reducing the c-section rate as the primary agenda of childbirth reform in Taiwan. I advocate the extended use of midwives as the best strategy to reduce medically unnecessary c-sections. I also suggest the establishment of birthing centers to extend birthing women's options. Finally, I argue for the alliance with women's movement for effective childbirth reforms in Taiwan.
