Rochester, N.Y. - To mark Labor Day, the Rochester Area Birth Network held a rally at Cobbs Hill Park to raise awareness about infant mortality.
The group partnered with Improving Birth, a national organization, for their “Rally to Improve Birth.”
They want to encourage women to get involved in their own pregnancy.
“Pregnant women should find out what their options are in their own maternity care,” said the co-leader of Rochester Area Birth Network Dianne Cassidy.
Dozens of rallies were held Monday throughout the county.
