The Big Push

I always cruise blogs when I am at work, and I found this one a few days ago, and their post yesterday was one everyone needs to go to.

The Obama Presidency asked if there was anything particular this country needed in Health Care Reform.

We need Certified Professional Midwives to be legalized in all states!!! Right now, only 26 states are allowed to use them. It should not be this way.

Please, go to this link, it will take you to the post and has a link on there that will take you to the email form.

Please go there, go to the link, and request CPMs!! The post explains it the best, but please go there!!

  1. Yes, I did that. In Illinois CPMs aren't legal. That is awesome that you are planning to be one!

  2. Oops, I was signed in under my husband, Jason.

  3. Sadly the problem with pushing for CPMs is that in certain states where midwifery is legal already, and doesn't have too many restrictions … the Big Push can ( and has ) actually end up *requiring* certification for midwives, therefore putting more restriction on practices. 😦 I wish we could pick and choose which to keep ( like direct-entry midwifery ) along side new laws allowing midwives in states previously hostile towards midwifery. I hate the political side of all of this. Birth choices should be left to women and families.
