Families Rally with a Message for Moms-to-Be

A large rally was held Monday along a busy street in Las Vegas with a message for moms-to-be.

The rally was organized by a group called improvingbirth.org. The group wants women to become better informed about the advantages of natural child birth and the risks of cesarean sections.

According to the group, the number of c-sections are on the rise around the country and women do not understand the risks of the procedure.

"It can interfere with your milk production. Women are walking away with post traumatic stress disorder, depression clinically diagnosed. There is also the issue of trying to bear children again," Jessica Sullivan, the Las Vegas coordinator of the movement, said.

The rally was held at the intersection of Charleston and Valley View Boulevards.
