Natural birth rates in Nunavut - Martine Dupont

Nunavut has a high birth rate. But the territory also shows the lowest rate of caesarian sections, compared to rest of Canada. Only one out of ten babies born the territory arrive by c-section. And Nunavut also has the lowest rate in usage of epidural, which eases the pain of labour for expectant Moms. This is good news for Martine Dupont of Iqaluit. CBC's Daniel MacIssac spoke with her.
