Alabama midwifery

Apr. 8th, 2010 | 08:21 am

I don't think this has been posted here and I just want to share. In a little less than two hours the Alabama senate will vote on SB 414 to license Certified Professional Midwives. Opponents have been trying to win over some particular senators by calling it the "lay midwifery bill" but there is still a lot of support for the bill. Let's all hope this passes!

If you live in Alabama, some last minute phone calls may make a difference - especially to a few senators. Please go here for more information. Especially if you live in the district of Ben Brooks(his number is 689-6554)- call! A few women from his district have been in touch with him already. He has said he supports midwives(his wife had three natural births) but he's still a little nervous about the possibility of something going wrong.  He's been really nice and has asked for more phone calls on the issue this morning.
