Ohio Midwives Rally

Today we were able to attend a rally at the state capital to support legislation for licensure of certified professional midwives in Ohio. Right now, direct entry midwifery is allegal, neither legal nor illegal. There is no legislation in place to protect both midwives and the families they serve. This is an important issue to Michael and I because as most of you know we have chosen homebirth for one of our child's birth and plan to go that route again in the future. We want to keep homebirth as an option for families, and most importatly a SAFE option. We had a great time supporting this cause. If anyone wants more information on Ohio Midwifery legislations, please visit here.
